Summary0001927: ENH: Add fvOptions to turbulence models
DescriptionThe ability to add sources, constraints, etc. to turbulence models would be a nice feature. I got someone's version of kEpsilon with options working for 2.3.x, but it's broken as of the 3.0 changes:

This is on the list of things to do but will take a bit of time, particularly for testing. We are seeking sponsorship for this development.

    turbulenceModels/RAS/kEpsilon/kEpsilon: Added experimental support for fvOptions

Currently fvOptions.correct(nut) is performed in correct() rather than correctNut() to ensure that post-processing utilities which do not instantiate fvOptions can instantiate turbulence models. It would be preferable to provide the fvOptions as an argument to the turbulence models constructor and New factory method and hold a reference rather than looking it up from the database but this would then require that all utilities which instantiate turbulence models first construct fvOptions. All the issues surrounding these choices are being considered.

fvOptions are now fully supported in all turbulence models in OpenFOAM-dev.
