ysun is on a distinguished road

In "$FOAM_SOLVERS/multiphase/twoPhaseEulerFoam/kineticTheoryModels/conductivityModel/HrenyaSinclair/HrenyaSinclairConductivity.C", it seems that "g0" is missing from the second term of "kappa":
    return rhoa*da*sqrt(Theta)*
        2.0*sqr(alpha)*g0*(1.0 + e)/sqrtPi
      + (9.0/8.0)*sqrtPi*0.25*sqr(1.0 + e)*(2.0*e - 1.0)*sqr(alpha)
       /(49.0/16.0 - 33.0*e/16.0)
      + (15.0/16.0)*sqrtPi*alpha*(0.5*sqr(e) + 0.25*e - 0.75 + lamda)
       /((49.0/16.0 - 33.0*e/16.0)*lamda)
      + (25.0/64.0)*sqrtPi
       /((1.0 + e)*(49.0/16.0 - 33.0*e/16.0)*lamda*g0)
Instead, the second term should be:
      + (9.0/8.0)*sqrtPi*g0*0.25*sqr(1.0 + e)*(2.0*e - 1.0)*sqr(alpha)
       /(49.0/16.0 - 33.0*e/16.0)
I use 2.2.x, but 1.6-ext has the same issue. If someone can confirm on this then we should probably report it as a bug to be fixed. Thanks!
