WIP: functionObject: Lamb Vector and its Divergence

Kutalmış Berçin requested to merge feature-functionObjects-lambVector into develop


Potential VW Sub-Project: Lamb Vector and its Divergence functionObject.

Lamb vector is the cross-product of vorticity and velocity.

The motivation to do so stems from the close connection between the Lamb vector divergence and the motions in a flow, especially those instantaneous motions in turbulent flows, having a distinctively high capacity to effect a time rate of change of momentum, and generate forces such as drag.

Resolved bugs (If applicable)


Details of new models (If applicable)

Verification, hence pictures, will be provided based on the plane channel flow cases reported the journal paper below:

The Lamb vector divergence in Navier–Stokes flows, J. Fluid Mech. (2008), vol. 610, pp. 261–284., doi:10.1017/S0022112008002760O


Not that I know of.
