Summary0001749: createTurbulenceFields doesn't re-load turbulence fields after the first time step
DescriptionI guess this utility rarely is used or is used only for the latest or first field, hence this not having been reported yet.

The problem is that the "RASModel" variable will only load the turbulence fields for the first time and it will not reload those fields for the following time directories.

This utility could probably use a bit more work in it, but for now I'm only able to provide a quick fix, shown in the "Additional Information" entry.
Steps To Reproduce1. Run the tutorial "incompressible/simpleFoam/pitzDaily"

2. Run the utility createTurbulenceFields

3. Run paraFoam

4. Inspect the omega field, which will remain the same throughout the whole simulation.
Additional InformationInline patch for a quick fix:
