I'm running foam-extend 4.1 to use the mixingPlane model in a turbomachinery case.
Studying available papers on this i've found two mixingPlane schemes which seem to be available in earlier versions, but are no longer implemented in foam-extend 4.1.

These are:
  • fluxAveragingAdjustMassFlow for U
  • zeroGradientMatchAverageValue for p
They're described here: Link see 4.3.1 and 4.3.2.
In older foam-extend version these schemes also appear in the fvSchemes files in some tutorials: Link

Does anyone know what happened to it?

Hi Bastian,

I asked Martin Beaudoin back in 2018 the same question and got the following answer:

Those schemes were experimental, and never got publicly released. Since then, my company stopped all development regarding the mixingPlane.

I hope to contribute again to this development on my own spare time, but for now, this is the situation.


Those schemes have sadly not been implemented in any publicly available
