Dear Sir/Madam, 

 

I'm confused by the same question on the dimension of "heat flux" however the orginal question and answer is not displayed any more (may be it's too long ago). Could you please repost the answer again? Thanks very much!

As a reminder, the question is about "is VNT a heat advection v*dT/dy or heat convergence d(V*T)/dy?"

Best,

Bowen

After digging into the code, it seems to me that VNT=T*V*dx/(dx*dy). Thus to get back to the traditional VT, we simply need VT=VNT*HTE, where HTE=dy. Please correct me please if I were wrong.

Is UET -> u*dT/dx , VNT -> v*dT/dy, WTT-> w*dT/dz ?
