Hello there,
I am working on a problem where I have to modify the solver to account for energy equation. And I included temperature in simpleFoam similar to work done here http://
But in my project, the energy dissipation as a result of fraction of the plastic deformation must be included in the energy equation. The term of energy dissipation is the function of temperature and stain rate. But I cant express it using OpenFoam language (e.g. fvm::div(phi, T)- fvm::laplacian(TempD_, T)). The attachment is the detail of my question.

Please help me.
Thanks a lot to you all
