ENH: Coulomb: new particle electric force model calculating Coulomb forces

Kutalmış Berçin requested to merge feature-particle-coulomb-force into develop


OpenFOAM lacked a Lagrangian model for electrostatic forces acting on particles based on their diameters.


The present commits furnish a model of this kind, along with essential underlying changes in the 'electricPotential' function object for evaluating the electric field. The coupling is one way (for now).

  • Alltest: No new error/No change in existing output
  • No output change in all operating conditions except the following:
    • The electric field is computed according to the new Boolean input electricField instead of writeDerivedFields toogle.
