Where do I find the equation for alphat?

I'm using the sonicFoam solver and would very much like to look up the equations used to compute the thermophysical and transport properties. I'm especially interested in alphat, but as I am new to OpenFOAM I'm having problems navigating the source code and finding said equations.

Thanks for your help

Found it. It depends on which turbulence model you are using. Using compressible kEpsilon it can be found in /src/turbulenceModels/compressible/RAS/kEpsilon/kEpsilon.C
