Is use of "as follows" in the following sentence correct grammatically and conceptually? If it is not , kindly suggest ways to make it clearer.

The first term on the right-hand side of the eq. 5 represents entropy generation by dissipation in the mean flow field as follows:

    Yes, the use of "as follows" is fine grammatically. I can't be sure it's fine from a thermodynamics point of view, but I trust you on that.

    However, it should be "... on the right-hand side of eq. 5 ..." without "the." When you identify the equation by number, you don't need an article. Compare "The king went to bed" and "King George went to bed." When we say which king it was, we don't need "the."
