Dear developers,

I have two questions on the functor SuperLatticePhysHeatFlux3D. My first question is about the factor _temp which contains (tau-0.5)/tau. I don’t understand where it comes from. I have found the same factor in the definition of the heat flux in the paper “M. Gaedtke, S. Wachter, M. Rädle, H. Nirschl, M. Krause, Application of a lattice Boltzmann method combined with a Smagorinsky turbulence model to spatially resolved heat flux inside a refrigerated vehicle, Comput. Math. Appl. 76 (10) (2018) 2315–2329”, but there is no indication of how it was found.

The second question is why there is a difference between the definition in the paper and the way it is computed in SuperLatticePhysHeatFlux3D ? Indeed, in the paper, the first moment (sum(ci*gi)) is used, but in the functor, it is the non-equilibrium part of the first moment (sum(ci*gi)-Tu).

Thanks

Best regards
