What is the best way to visualize contours of turbulent intensity and viscosity ratio in paraFoam? Does this require adding code in Foam itself, or is there a way in paraFoam to calculate them from k and epsilon?

Easiest to add code in Foam - either to your main code (add extra fields) or write a post-processing code to read in k,e and write out TKE and viscosity ratio.

I doubt that its possible in paraFoam
