Summary0002521: Wall boiling model refinements
DescriptionRefinements for the wall boiling model:


1. Provide Qe() and Qq() member functions for evaporative and quenching heat fluxes for postprocessing. Store and read Qq.
2. Use Qe() in the alphat calculation to make sure the the thermal diffusivity is consistent with the dmdt and mDotL.
3. Do not limit the maximum of the estimated y+ = 250 liquid temperature to cell temperature. On a coarse grids it can be higher.
4. Allow negative subcooling temperature in Del Valle & Kenning (1985) area fraction calculation. Limit the exp() power to log(VGREAT) to avoid possible fpe.
5. Removed extraneous fLiquid calculation.

nucleationSiteModel & departureDiameterModel:
Provide saturation temperature, liquid temperature and latent heat calculated by the alphatWallBoilingWallFunctionFvPatchScalarField to the submodels in order to make implementation of new models more simple and consistent.

I've attached an updated version of the patch where the heat fluxes are renamed Q -> q in order to be consistent with OpenFOAM naming convention.
