Mean Shear Rate#

Mean shear rate = {yes | no}

Description / Usage#

The mean shear rate is defined as


where \(II_D\) is the second invariant of D, the strain-rate tensor,


associated with the Navier-Stokes equations. This variable is called SHEAR in the output EXODUS II file.

The permissible values for this postprocessing option are:


Calculate the mean shear rate.


Do not calculate the mean shear rate.
