In continuing my exploration of the new lagrangian spray libraries, I've tried to run sprayEngineFoam with a profile I've used before to simulate diesel injection. However, there is no injection at any time during the run.

I think it may have to do with the mapping from crank angle to seconds. In the old dieselSpray libraries there was mapping done with userTimeToTime so that the profile can be specified in crank angle degrees (which is pretty standard), which I haven't been able to find yet in the new libraries. Right now I've specified SOI, duration and profile in CAdegrees and get no injection. Is there another combination I should try? I would think specifying everything from the dictionary in crank angles makes the most sense.

I don't know if this qualifies as feature request or bug report, so I'll leave it here for consideration.

Totally forgot I hadn't reported; there was indeed a problem with the crank angle mapping. The version currently on git is working properly.
