      ENH: lumped point motion using local linear basic functions (#1341) · b0136d83
      Mark Olesen authored
      - the earlier implementation of externally controlled lumped point
        motion (see merge request !120 and OpenFOAM-v1706 release notes) was
        conceived for the motion of simple structures such as buildings or
        simple beams. The motion controller was simply defined in terms of
        an orientation axis and divisions along that axis.
        To include complex structures, multiple motion controllers are
        defined in terms of support points and connectivity.
        The points can have additional node Ids associated with them, which
        makes it easier to map to/from FEA models.
        OLD system/lumpedPointMovement specification
            //- Reference axis for the locations
            axis            (0 0 1);
            //- Locations of the lumped points
            locations       (0 0.05 .. 0.5);
        NEW system/lumpedPointMovement specification
            // Locations of the lumped points
                (0  0  0.00)
                (0  0  0.05)
                (0  0  0.50)
            //- Connectivity for motion controllers
                    pointLabels (0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10);
        And the controller(s) must be associated with the given
        pointDisplacement patch. Eg,
               type            lumpedPointDisplacement;
               value           uniform (0 0 0);
               controllers     ( vertical );   // <-- NEW
      TUT: adjust building motion tutorial
      - use new controllor definitions
      - replace building response file with executable
      - add updateControl in dynamicMeshDict for slowly moving structure

      ENH: improve/verify atmBoundaryLayerInlet conditions · 336fb3bd

        ENH: add generalised log-law type ground-normal inflow boundary conditions for
        wind velocity and turbulence quantities for homogeneous, two-dimensional,
        dry-air, equilibrium and neutral atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) modelling
        ENH: remove `zGround` entry, which is now automatically computed
        ENH: add `displacement height` entry, `d`
        ENH: add generalised atmBoundaryLayerInletOmega boundary condition
        ENH: add a verification case for atmBoundaryLayerInlet BCs
        DOC: improve atmBoundaryLayerInlet header documentation
        BUG: fix value-entry behaviour in atmBoundaryLayerInlet (fixes #1578)
        Without this change:
        - for serial-parallel computations, if `value` entry is available in
          an `atmBoundaryLayerInlet` BC, the theoretical ABL profile expressions
          are not computed, and the `value` entry content is used as a profile data
        - for parallel computations, if `value` entry is not available, `decomposePar`
          could not be executed.
        With this change:
        - assuming `value` entry is always be present, the use of `value` entry for
          the ABL profile specification is determined by a flag `initABL`
        - the default value of the optional flag `initABL` is `true`, but whenever
          `initABL=true` is executed, `initABL` is overwritten as `false` for the
          subsequent runs, so that `value` entry can be safely used.
        Thanks Per Jørgensen for the bug report.

      ENH: add new FO Streaming-Total Dynamic Mode Decomposition (STDMD) · 730233cd
      Kutalmis Bercin authored
          STDMD (i.e. Streaming Total Dynamic Mode Decomposition) is a variant of
          a data-driven dimensionality reduction method.
          STDMD is being used as a mathematical post-processing tool to compute
          a set of dominant modes out of a given flow (or dataset) each of which is
          associated with a constant frequency and decay rate, so that dynamic
          features of a given flow may become interpretable, and tractable.
          Among other Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD) variants, STDMD is presumed
          to provide the general DMD method capabilities alongside economised and
          feasible memory and CPU usage.
          Please refer to the header file documentation for further details.

      ENH: add blockMeshDict "mergeType" keyword (#1589) · 44b22560
      Mark Olesen authored
      - enumerated values are (points | topology) which can be optionally
        specified in the blockMeshDict. Default is 'topology'.
        If the command-line option `blockMesh -merge-points` is specified,
        this has absolute priority over any blockMeshDict entry.
      STYLE: changed blockMesh "-blockTopology" option to "-write-obj"
      - this is more specific to what it does. Potentially wish to add a
        "-write-vtk" option in the future.
      TUT: adjust tutorials to use preferred or necessary merge strategies:
        * channel395DFSEM - topology
        * nozzleFlow2D - points
        * pipeCyclic - points

      DEFEATURE: deprecate v2f model in favour of kEpsilonPhitF · ab0dd1f1
      Kutalmis Bercin authored
        - kEpsilonPhitF is a kEpsilon-based model which originated
          from (Durbin, 1995)’s v2-f methodology. However, the majority of
          v2-f model variants proved to be numerically stiff for segregated
          solution algorithms due to the coupled formulations of v2 and f fields,
          particularly on wall boundaries.
          The v2-f variant (i.e. OpenFOAM’s v2f model) due to
          (Lien and Kalitzin, 2001) reformulated the original v2-f model to enable
          segregated computations; however, a number of shortcomings regarding
          the model fidelity were reported in the literature.
          To overcome the shortcomings of the v2-f methodology, the v2-f approach
          was re-evaluated by (Laurence et al., 2005) by transforming v2 scale into
          its equivalent non-dimensional form, i.e. phit, to reduce the numerical
          This variant, i.e. kEpsilonPhitF, is believed to provide numerical
          robustness, and insensitivity to grid anomalies while retaini...
