Default Own turbulence model: cell loop

bastil is on a distinguished road

I want to write my own turbulence model. I looked into existing models in 1.5-dev and found some similar models. However, in my model I want to apply different formulations for epsilon and nut depending on the wall distance.
I guess therefore I have to look over all cells to check wall distance for each cell? How is this loop done? I only found loops over faces in the wall-functions. The default behaviour seems to be to solve the equations globally not individually for echa cell, right?

Thanks Bastian
