How to calculate turbulent shear stresses
I am using OpenFoam to compute turbulent flows...
I would like to calculate the turbulent shear stress, which is defined as u'v'=2*nut*Sij*Sij

where nut is the turbulent kinematic viscosity, while Sij is, by definition, the derivative of velocity (Sij=DUi/DXj).

The question is: How to say how to calculate the derivatives of velocity to OpenFoam??

Or, by the way, how to calculate any other value I need, besides pressure and velocity...
