I want to use the WALE (Wall adapting local eddy viscosity) model and the kinetic energy subgrid-scale model for my final year undergraduate project.

In openfoam they aren't called the same names as above. I have established that the dynOneEqEddy is the kinetic energy subgrid-scale model by looking at the transport equations in the programmers guide. I am not as sure on the WALE model, i think it is the locDynOneEqEddy but i can't confirm it.

Could someone let me know if I am correct about the kinetic energy model and the WALE model, and if not, which are the corresponding openfoam models?
