WIP: Integration of IH Cantabria wave modelling contributions

Admin requested to merge integration-ihc-wave-modelling into develop

New code

New wave generation model:

  • streamFunction: based on Fenton's Fourier approximation

New interFoam-based solver:

  • interPorousFoam: alternative method to include porosity effects, to be used with new fvOptions (see below)

New fvOptions:

  • multiphasePorositySource: porosity for multiphase flows
  • mangrovesSource: mangrove interaction, i.e. drag and turbulence contributions for k-epsilon based models

Test cases:

  • interPorousFoam/porousDamBreak
  • interPorousFoam/mangroves

Code integration

  • Initial code supplied in commits e0682d67 and 2124eb88; and integrated into OpenFOAM by OpenCFD
