Release of RichardsFoam3

RichardsFoam3 is an updated version of the OpenFOAM solver RichardsFoam, previously presented in ”An open source massively parallel solver for Richards equation: Mechanistic modelling of water fluxes at the watershed scale” by Orgogozo et al. (2014), and in the new version announcement ”RichardsFOAM2: a new version of RichardsFOAM devoted to the modelling of the vadose zone” by Orgogozo (2015).
This new version includes improvements of memory handling and of on-the-fly control of computations, a better integration in the OpenFOAM framework, simplifications of the coding of some expressions, as well as new advanced boundary conditions. All together these developments allow to enhanced the ease of application of the code to continental surfaces hydrogeology modeling, its computational performances and its readability.
An updated version of permaFoam will also be released soon.
