How to add new Boundary types
I believe that 2 new boundary types are needed for realistic simulations of wind turbines (or any wings), because movingWallVelocity causes too much drag on wings.

I'd like to add 2 new types. movingWallSlip, and movingWallPartialSlip.

My questions are: 1) Is anyone currently doing this or know a way to already do this? 2) Could someone point me to the files / classes that I need to look at to figure out how partialSlip and slip are implemented and where I would attempt to add the movingWall versions?
