Splitting interface patch to enable option for mixingPlane BC - Rotor Region
There are two approaches to stator-rotor interface:
- Frozen Rotor – direct mapping between stator and rotor
- Mixing Plane – special averaging and then mapping between stator and rotor

Patch is split using utility createPatch. New patches will be defined using sets generated by the topoSet utility. First create configuration file topoSetDict, then run topoSet utility:
sh genTopoSetDict.rotor.sh > system/topoSetDict
