Summary0002699: Eulerian multiphase, faceMomentum: fvOption rho sources are neglected in momentum equations
DescriptionfaceMomentum formulation does account for fvOption rho sources in the momentum equation, which produces erroneous velocity fields when such sources are present.
Steps To ReproduceI've attached a reactingTwoPhaseEulerFoam test case where water is injected in to a vessel filled with air. The expected water injection velocity is 1 m/s.

If you run it with faceMomentum on and off the the results will show:
faceMomentum off: 1 m/s as expected
facemomentum on: 167 m/s

I've also attached a modified UEqns.H that includes the rho fvOption term. With this modification the "facemomentum on" also produces the expected 1 m/s injection velocity.
Additional InformationThe same issue applies to the twoPhaseEulerFoam faceMomentum formulation.
