Summary0001657: cAlpha is not reread during runtime
Descriptionchanging cAlpha in fvSolutions during runtime does not have an effect. Solver output ("re-reading mofified fvSolution...") is missleading.
Reason for not updating: cAlpha is read only once in constructor of interPhaseProperties, which is called in createFields.H. This is only done at start up.
Steps To Reproducechange cAlpha in one of the inter-solvers during runtime.
TagsNo tags attached.

interfaceProperties: Add support for re-read of sigma and cAlpha
    Note that currently when transportProperties is changed sigma is re-read
    from this dictionary but cAlpha is read from fvSolution but cAlpha is
    not re-read when fvSolution is changed but transportProperties is not
    touched. To avoid this problem cAlpha would need to be moved to the
    transportProperties dictionary which is not ideal or moved out of the
    interfaceProperties class back to the top-level solver.
