Hi all,

I created an utility to calculate LES / DNS flow and heatflux budgets in OpenFOAM. The solver calculates required variables or the fly (instantaneous) and then the means of these variables can be used to calculate various terms such as "production", "dissipation" etc . There is also a post-processing tool which will calculate all these terms for you and you just have to then plot wherever you want them in the entire field. There is a test case for the tutorial too!

I created this in OpenFOAM v6 3 years back but now making it opensource. We have published a couple of papers with this solver so the code is validated.

Here is the github link for the code:

Let me know if you have any questions and I hope this is helpful to the community.
