wallShearStress with compressible flow
Dear Foamers,

I would like to extract the shear stress among a wall with inconstant density (in a compressible flow).

The problem now is that wallShearStress only operates with kinematic viscosity which in my case would vary due to density change. Is there any way to calculate the shear stress with wallShearStress in cases of constant dynamic viscosity?

Thanks for your help!
