Getting Started

Create a project directory within the $HOME/OpenFOAM directory named <USER>-7 (e.g. chris-7 for user chris and OpenFOAM version 7) and create a directory named run within it, e.g. by typing:

mkdir -p $FOAM_RUN

Copy across the backward facing step example, generate the mesh with blockMesh and run the steady flow, incompressible solver simpleFoam

cd $FOAM_RUN
cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS/incompressible/simpleFoam/pitzDaily .
cd pitzDaily
blockMesh
simpleFoam
paraFoam

Refer to the OpenFOAM User Guide to get started.

In this tutorial, you will learn to simulate a simple case (pitzDaily tutorial) using OpenFOAM.
