wallHeatFlux: Enthalpy formulation
 
Doing some studies on flame wall interaction, I keep getting wall heat flux values lower than those stated in the literature under similar conditions.

I'm using a custom chemistry solver, but the heat flux is the same even when using the built in chemistry of OpenFOAM 1.6. I've been reading on the forums that 1.7 changes to a sensible enthalpy instead of the total enthalpy in 1.6. Would this make any difference to the heat flux calculation?
