kkLOmega Implementations in OpenFOAM
Ship's Log - Software

A kkLOmega Solution around the ellipsk-kl-omega is a relatively new transition turbulence model. Since the version 2.1.0 this model has been implemented in OpenFOAM.  The model is based on the k-omega with an additional transport equation included to predict low-frequency velocity fluctuations that trigger transition in the boundary layer [1].

According to the notes in OpenFOAM source code, the latest version which is 2.4.0 as today has a significant update for the implementation of this turbulence model. Original note in the "kkLOmega.H (OpenFOAM-2.4.0.tgz)" is as follows:

A 2D Preprocessor for Wing Sections: Construct2D

Construct2D; a Preprocessor for CFD

Construct2D is an open source preprocessor for building the computational structured grids around wing sections. It may also work for other shapes though. Basically it works on 2D but also has a limited 3D capability by extruding the 3D grid on z axis.

The software has no GUI and written in Fortran. Indeed it does not need a GUI and works perfectly and efficiently via the command line. Construct2D can be compiled on different operating systems but I am using it on Linux and my experience is based on that OS only. On Linux the installation procedure is simple and smooth.
