Summary0000603: Calculating the viscous force using the Bird Carreau transport model
DescriptionI noticed that when the viscous force is calculated in the forces.c file only the viscosity "nu" as specified in the transportProperties dictionairy is used. However, when using the a Non-Newtonian transport model the viscosity is not constant.
TagsNo tags attached.

When employing a non-Newtonian viscosity model the forces function object will correctly return the viscosity from the selected model; only for the case that there is no viscosity model and that the transportProperties dictionary exists will the value of nu be read.
