Hi everybody,

I am trying to model viscoelastic flow using OpenFoam. In the model equations there is term in the form div of the inner product of the velocity times the stress tensor, that arises from the definition of the maxwell upper convected derivative. I am representing it as fvm::div(phi,stresstensor). Am i right?
