SAS Turbulence model in OpenFOAM
Hi all!
I'm new in OpenFOAM and previously used CFX.

When I checked the turbulence models available in OpenFOAM I was wondering why the Menter Scale Adaptive Simulation approach (SAS) is defined as an isochoric LES-model.
As far as I know the SAS approach works well also for compressible flow. (at least in CFX)
Is there any physical reason why it is not implemented into OpenFOAM for a nonisochoric solver?

Best regards,
