Hello to all,
i have a little doubt. In my blockMesh file i wrote

Code:
convertToMeters 1e-6;
Does the scale apply other changes to other parameters? Should i take it in consideration when i set the diffusivity value for the scalarTransportFoam?

Thanks for help

This parameter only scales the magnitudes of your geometry introduced in the blockMeshDict-file.

Well, it depends... (see How to give enough info to get help). In case you are simply interested on simulating a practical application "no, you shouldn't".
