Default Contrib wpcRAS: utility to calculate wind pressure coefficient

I just found this tool to calculate wind pressure coefficients (works for OF1.6, OF2.0)

I tried it on OF 2.1.x... did not work..
I hope that I can find a similar tool for OF 2.1.x

Any ideas??

In readDict.H comment out all the octree stuff and replace with a single line i.e. modify as per below:
    Info << "Reference Static Pressure Location = " <<
        referenceStaticPressureLocation << endl; 

    //~ // make octree  data cells
    //~ const cellList& cells = mesh.cells();
    //~ const pointField& points = mesh.points();

    //~ treeBoundBox meshBb(points);

    //~ scalar typDim = meshBb.avgDim()/(2.0*pow(cells.size(), 1.0/3.0));

    //~ treeBoundBox shiftedBb
    //~ (
        //~ meshBb.min() - vector(typDim, typDim, typDim),
        //~ meshBb.max() + vector(typDim, typDim, typDim)
    //~ );

    //~ octreeDataCell shapes(mesh);

    //~ octree<octreeDataCell> oc
    //~ (
        //~ shiftedBb,  // overall bounding box
        //~ shapes,     // all information needed to do checks on cells
        //~ 1,          // min. levels
        //~ 10.0,       // max. size of leaves
        //~ 10.0        // maximum ratio of cubes v.s. cells
    //~ );

    // label cellRefPstat = oc.find(referenceStaticPressureLocation);

    label cellRefPstat = mesh.findCell(referenceStaticPressureLocation);
and comment out the octree stuff in wpcRAS.C:
#include "incompressible/RAS/RASModel/RASModel.H"
//~ #include "octree.h"
//~ #include "octreeDataCell.H"
#include "wallFvPatch.H"
Should work. I just grabbed a mesh lookup from the probes source code.
