ENH: FO: Lamb vector
- If applied: This commit allows the user to compute: - the Lamb vector (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamb_vector), - on-the-fly or via postProcess utility - for a given volVectorField (one per functionObject entry) - Why: The motivation is the literature-reported quantitative connection between the Lamb vector (divergence) and the spatially localised instantaneous fluid motions, e.g. high- and low-momentum fluid parcels, which possess considerable level of capacity to affect the rate of change of momentum, and to generate forces such as drag. - Verification: - Smooth-wall plane channel flow case (Moser et al. 1999) by # Curtis et al. (2008) On the Lamb vector divergence in Navier–Stokes flows, doi:10.1017/S0022112008002760 - What's next: - The verification-show case - Extended code guide entry titled "Lamb vector"
