The new features and interfaces are:

  • New user-friendly features:
    • New meta descriptor concept
    • New homogenised lattice Boltzmann method
    • New free energy model
    • Validated wall shear stress functor
  • New examples:
    • multiComponent/contactAngle2d and multiComponent/contactAngle3d
    • multiComponent/youngLaplace2d and multiComponent/youngLaplace3d
    • multiComponent/microFluidics2d
    • particles/magneticParticles3d
    • particles/settlingCube3d
    • particles/dkt2d
    • porousMedia/porousPoiseuille3d
  • Minor improvements and developer notes:
    • Restructure example folder
    • Restructure and improve functors
    • New std::shared_ptr-based functor arithmetic to ease memory management and enable functor composition
    • Convenient relative and absolute Lp error norm functors
    • Bug fixed in GnuPlotWriter
    • C++ 14 standard is now mandatory
  • Compatibility tested on:
