Summary0001934: porousBafflePressure BC does not work with incompressible solvers like simpleFoam
DescriptionA simpleFoam case using the porousBafflePressure crashes with the message
FOAM FATAL ERROR:
    request for volScalarField rho from objectRegistry region0 failed

Of course, an incompressible solver does not have a volScalarField rho.

But in the code of porousBafflePressureFvPatchField.C I find
if (phi.dimensions() == dimensionSet(0, 3, -1, 0, 0))
    {
        Un /= patch().lookupPatchField<volScalarField, scalar>(rhoName_);
    }

Shouldn't this formula be used in a compressible case instead?

phi may have the dimensions of a mass-flux or volume flux in a compressible solver and Un only needs to be divided by rho iff phi is a mass-flux.
