Hi Everyone
Does anybody have any ideas on how can distance between current (in Field Function) Cell and neighbour Cells be calculated?
A kind of average maybe (in case of polyhedral mesh).

Idea is that i have negative Heat Source (written currently as a equation on a paper) that sets Heat Source according to difference between current Cell's Temperature and next to that neighbour's in x-direction Temperature; so that would be
that should be multiplied by Δx.

In fluent that was possible due to damned C-code loop; in Star-CCM+ ... ?
