Hi guys,
I am trying to produce turbulent kinetic energy terms from my instantaneous velocity field. I was able to produce the reynolds stress tensor using the volSymmTensor. But, I cannot seem to find a list for 3rd rank tensor in openfoam. Can somebody tell me where I can find that, or how to create one.

Phil C. seemed to have been able to do something similar:

I would read what he posted about it there. It might be somewhat involved so get ready to work.
