OpenFOAM (Open Source Field Operation and Manipulation) is an open source CFD software package developed by the OpenFOAM team at ESI and distributed by the OpenFOAM Foundation. OpenFOAM is a CFD toolbox, written in C++ and these C++ libraries are used to create executables, known as applications. The OpenFOAM distribution contains numerous solvers and utilities covering a wide range of CFD problems. In this tutorial series, all the three stages in a CFD simulation, namely pre-processing, running, and post-processing, are focused in-depth. The first two stages are demonstrated in this series using version 7 of OpenFOAM, while ParaView 5.6.0 is used for post-processing. In addition to software training, this tutorial series also strives to demonstrate the basic CFD concepts for better understanding of various OpenFOAM solvers and utilities. Being an open source software, OpenFOAM can be useful to technical institutes who cannot afford expensive licenses of commercial CFD software. The students and teachers trying to learn OpenFOAM through this series are expected to have some basic knowledge of CFD and Linux commands. Read more
