I was going through the standard solvers and I didn't see a compressible LES solver. Does this mean OpenFOAM can't do compressible LES?

Hi,

I guess turbulence handling in compressible solvers are generic, i.e. this is a part of rhoCentralFoam/createFields.H:

Code:
Info<< "Creating turbulence model\n" << endl;
autoPtr<compressible::turbulenceModel> turbulence
(
    compressible::turbulenceModel::New
    (
        rho,
        U,
        phi,
        thermo
    )
);
and if you go to $FOAM_SRC/turbulenceModels/compressible/LES, you can find a list of compressible LES models.

Ok I think I understand. I'm just starting to learn about LES so I thought I needed to find the proper solver first but I guess there's more than one correct answer.
