Default Openfoam: For New Physics Development?

Hi All,

I have learned how to use Autodesk's SimulationCFD2014. While teaching this to myself I discovered some shortcomings with the physics and the behavior of the code itself particularly when compressible flows are modeled. This physics is outlined at and is based on conservation of power--a force acting with velocity. Conserving power allows one to compute the resistance an element offers to a flow and resistance is linear with velocity instead of hyperbolic like energy. Elements can easily be added or divided and eddies can be added as an element. In the late seventies I learned fortran and have not programed since.

With all this background out of the way my question is will openfoam allow me to code my physics? How long will it take an old dog to learn it? Note: no C++ experience. And finally would any of you be interested in joining up and writing a paper on the numerical implementation of this physics?

I thank you in advance for any time you may devote to this.
