I've been working on a solver for colloidal particle flow based on the solidParticle class in OpenFOAM. There are a number of features that I have not implemented myself, but in looking over some of the classes and files in the lagrangian directory gives me hints that a lot of what I'd like to do is already built into OpenFOAM libraries. But in order to figure out how to use these I've got to be able to understand the comparison between the solidParticleCloud that I am using and the kinematicCloud that uses a lot of these things (collisions and injectors, specifically). Is the move() function in solidParticleCloud analogous to the evolve() function in the kinematicCloud class? What are these "Templates" classes listed under the lagrangian/intermediate/clouds/Templates directory? Are they simply meant to be a starting point for the construction of other classes? For instance, would it benefit me to work through the CollidingCloud template?
