Summary0001925: boundaryFoam solver unable to write results to disk when using kLowReWallFunction
DescriptionThe low Reynolds wall function for k does not behave properly in the new version of OpenFOAM. Indeed, it works well for the pitzDaily test case (simpleFoam), but using it together with the boundaryFoam solver causes the solver to exit when the first writeInterval has been reached. The following error message is displayed (after, say, 100 iterations):

Unknown patchField type kLowReWallFunction

Valid patchField types are :

Steps To ReproduceStarting from one of the boundaryFoam tutorials, switch to the v2f turbulence model with the recommended wall functions and necessary additions to fvSchemes and fvSolution. Run boundaryFoam solver for at least writeInterval iterations.
TagsNo tags attached.

Note that kLowReWallFunction is not an appropriate BC for the high-Re v2f model.

I have updated the mapping of k to R BCs and converted incompatible BCs to "calculated". Will push shortly.
