herbert is on a distinguished road

I have a question regarding the correction of the gradient on alphaContactAngle patches in interfaceProperties::correctContactAngle(). Starting from version 2.1.0 (or maybe even ealier) there is a correction of the gradient of alpha at all patches where a contact angle is prescribed:

acap.gradient() = (nf & nHatp)*mag(gradAlphaf[patchi]);
I really like this idea and adapted it slightly to my own purposes. Therefore, I would like to know where this idea is coming from in order to be able to cite this properly within my thesis.
