ENH: Improve the handling of wall-function coefficients and blenders

Kutalmış Berçin requested to merge issue-1457-refcast into develop


  • Fixes #1457 and #1966 (closed)
  • Improves the handling of wall-function coefficients and blenders
  • Standardises the output of wall-function entries
  • Removes redundant and inconsistent virtual specifiers
  • Modernises the code style
  • Improves header file documentation
  • Removes the blending option BINOMIAL2 from omegaWallFunction

Resolved bugs

Closes #1457, #1966 (closed)


  • Silently replaces the default blending option BINOMIAL2 of the omegaWallFunction with the option BINOMIAL with n=2. In theory, both expressions are the same. Yet numerically, both expressions will yield negligible differences in floating-point decimals.


  • Compilation (incl. submodules):
    • linux64ClangDPInt32Opt (clang11)
    • linux64GccDPInt32Opt
    • linux64GccSPDPInt64Debug
  • Alltest: No change in output with respect to the develop HEAD + no error
  • Verification: No change in output rhoSimpleFoam/simpleFoam/buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam
