wallHeatFluxIncompressible

Utility originally by the forum member Eelco van Vliet, for OpenFOAM 2.1.0: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/openfoam-post-processing/101972-wallheatflux-utility-incompressible-case.html#post368330

It's the one provided in the branch OF21x.

This git repository further adapts the utility for OpenFOAM 2.2.x, 2.3.x, 5 and 6, done by Bruno Santos (wyldckat@github working at FSD blueCAPE Lda).

WARNING: If you're planning on using OpenFOAM 2.2.0, then use the branch OF21x.

NOTE: In the Foundation's OpenFOAM-dev there is now a more general implementation that was introduced in the commits related to this bug report: http://www.openfoam.org/mantisbt/view.php?id=1856 - this means that the Boussinesq implementation is now part of the compressible heat transfer solvers, therefore no longer depending on explicit solvers dedicated to the Boussinesq implementation.
