          Velocity boundary condition generating synthetic turbulence-alike
          time-series for LES and DES turbulent flow computations.
          To this end, two synthetic turbulence generators can be chosen:
          - Digital-filter method-based generator (DFM)

          In DFM or FSM, a random number set (mostly white noise), and a group
          of target statistics (mostly mean flow, Reynolds stress tensor profiles and
          length-scale sets) are fused into a new number set (stochastic time-series,
          yet consisting of the statistics) by a chain of mathematical operations
          whose characteristics are designated by the target statistics, so that the
          realised statistics of the new sets could match the target.

          The main difference between DFM and FSM is that the latter replaces the
          streamwise convolution summation in DFM by a simpler and a quantitatively
          justified equivalent procedure in order to reduce computational costs.
          Accordingly, the latter potentially brings resource advantages for
          computations involving relatively large length-scale sets and small
