      Updated the whole of OpenFOAM to use the new templated TurbulenceModels library · 2aec2496
      Henry authored
      The old separate incompressible and compressible libraries have been removed.
      Most of the commonly used RANS and LES models have been upgraded to the
      new framework but there are a few missing which will be added over the
      next few days, in particular the realizable k-epsilon model.  Some of
      the less common incompressible RANS models have been introduced into the
      new library instantiated for incompressible flow only.  If they prove to
      be generally useful they can be templated for compressible and
      multiphase application.
      The Spalart-Allmaras DDES and IDDES models have been thoroughly
      debugged, removing serious errors concerning the use of S rather than
      The compressible instances of the models have been augmented by a simple
      backward-compatible eddyDiffusivity model for thermal transport based on
      alphat and alphaEff.  This will be replaced with a separate run-time
      selectable thermal transport model framework in a few weeks.
      For simplicity and ease of maintenance and further development the
      turbulent transport and wall modeling is based on nut/nuEff rather than
      mut/muEff for compressible models so that all forms of turbulence models
      can use the same wall-functions and other BCs.
      All turbulence model selection made in the constant/turbulenceProperties
      dictionary with RAS and LES as sub-dictionaries rather than in separate
      files which added huge complexity for multiphase.
      All tutorials have been updated so study the changes and update your own
      cases by comparison with similar cases provided.
      Sorry for the inconvenience in the break in backward-compatibility but
      this update to the turbulence modeling is an essential step in the
      future of OpenFOAM to allow more models to be added and maintained for a
      wider range of cases and physics.  Over the next weeks and months more
      turbulence models will be added of single and multiphase flow, more
      additional sub-models and further development and testing of existing
      models.  I hope this brings benefits to all OpenFOAM users.

      Added Catmull-Rom splines to blockMesh. · 5648be03
      Mark Olesen authored
      - the blockMesh interface is splineEdge.H, selectable as "spline"
      The first tests look fine - it works as expected for the case with
      buggy polySpline reported on the forum. Should of course do some more
      extensive testing.
      The advantages compared to the current B-Spline implementation:
      - Doesn't need a matrix solver.
      - The coding resembles something that can be found in the literature.
      - In contrast to the B-Spline implementation, it is fairly clear what
        is actually going on. I don't even know if the B-Spline are actually
        B-Spline, Beta-Splines or something else.
      - Catmull-Rom splines seem to be what all the graphics people have as
        their stable workhorse.
      We now have 3 different names for splines in blockMesh:
      - "spline" - *new* Catmull-Rom for arbitrary segments.
      - "simpleSpline" - B-Spline for a single segment
      - "polySpline" - B-Spline for a multiple segments
      Assuming the Catmull-Rom splines continue to behave nicely, there is
      no reason to keep the other (broken) B-Splines. This would help clean
      up the blockMesh interface too.
      Placed the older ones under legacy/ for easier identification in the
      - currently no handling of non-zero end tangents
      - could be extended to handle closed loops, which might be useful
        for feature edges from CAD (eg, for the cvm mesher)

      blockMesh/curvedEdges misc. cleanup · 33156d98
      Mark Olesen authored
      - also sifted through code to find out why polySplineEdge is going wrong
        It doesn't seem to be a virtual/non-virtual issue, but appears to
        be an issue with how BSpline is solving for the new points.

      blockMesh: most mesh data are now demand-driven · 897baf81
      Mark Olesen authored
      - Unless the points(), cells(), patches() methods are called, the classes
        should know maintain a lightweight representation for as long as possible.
      - bugfix: old-code used xferMove() instead of xferCopy() when creating the
        topology mesh - causing const pointField& to break if the code order was
      - relocate blockMesh from src/meshing -> src/mesh
