dimensionedScalar + volScalarField is evaluated elementwisely ?

I'd like to know if a dimensionedScalar (ex. T1) + volScalarField (ex. T) is still a volScalarField and the result is obtained elementwisely, that is : result(i)=T1+T(i).
I need also to use a scalar function (ex. pos) determing the positivity of a scalar. If I apply this function to a volScalarField (ex. T), can I still obtain a volScalarField and result(i)=pos(T(i)) ?
I wrote this because I'm now implementing a non-constant diffusivity in the laplacianFoam solver.
In mylaplacianFoam.C, I have
In creatFields.H, I have
volScalarField DT ( IOobject ( "DT", runTime.timeName(), mesh, IOobject::NO_READ, IOobject::AUTO_WRITE ), (a1+b1*T)*pos(T1-T)+(a2+b2*T)*neg(T1-T)*pos(T2-T)+(a3+b3*T)*neg(T2-T) );
Thank you very much for your help !!

Yes, pos(T - X), where T is a volScalarField and X is a dimensionedScalar will return a volScalarField.
