The OpenFOAM Foundation is pleased to announce the release of version 8 of the OpenFOAM open source CFD toolbox. Version 8 is a snapshot of the OpenFOAM development version which, through sustainable development, is always-releasable. It provides new functionality and major improvements to existing code, with strict demands on usability, robustness and extensibility. OpenFOAM 8 includes the following key developments:
- Multiphase: selectable interpolation for interface-capturing, PLIC scheme.
- Reacting multiphase: consolidated multiphaseEulerFoam solver and model development.
- Transport: new MomentumTransportModels and ThermophysicalTransportModels libraries.
- Thermophysical: thermodynamics and equation of state models, data input, refactoring.
- Surface Film: huge performance improvements and better surface handling.
- Heat transfer: better numerics and case setup, new thermal comfort modelling.
- Particle tracking: renamed uncoupled solvers, improved tracking efficiency, injection.
- Other models: transient/steady-state solvers, boundary conditions, reactions.
- Mesh: improved snappyHexMesh and blockMesh, face centre calculation, cyclic patches.
- Function Objects: improved visualization/field, residence time and configuration.
- Case Configuration: new configuration/initialisation tools, coded Function1.
- Computation: better data I/O, field caching, support for Arm processors.
In this tutorial you will learn how to simulate a Flow through Porous Media using Ansys CFX.
The NACA four-digit wing sections define the profile by:
First digit describing maximum camber as percentage of the chord.
Second digit describing the distance of maximum camber from the airfoil leading edge in tenths of the chord.
In this video you will learn how to simulate motorBike tutorial using OpenFOAM with simpleFoam solver.
In this tutorial you will learn how to create an animation using OpenFOAM through Paraview (paraFoam Command).
In this tutorial you will learn how to simulate the LES turbulence model using pitzDaily tutorial on OpenFOAM.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to simulate an Airfoil 2D using OpenFOAM. In this case, we will use the folder that comes by default.
In this tutorial you will learn to use Allclean and Allrun scripts on OpenFOAM. These scripts come by default in several OpenFOAM folders.
In the previous tutorial we installed OpenFOAM on Windows, in this video you will simulate the first tutorial called pitzDaily.
