If anyone is interested in performing Openfoam analysis of a simple heat transfer problem for a fee please let me know. The problem:
Flow through a rectangular duct with cylindrical obstruction
Turbulent flow (use k-e model)
Initial Speed = > 3.5 m/s
Water only (single phase)
Fully developed velocity profile at inlet
Pressure outlet (0 gauge)
Steady state
Heat transfer = 10 W/ (all surfaces) m2

Questions about the inletOutlet and outletInlet boundary conditions

With this boundary condition, we have that:
  • If the velocity vector at the outlet points out of the domain, then the boundary condition will be of the Neumann type, ie, zeroGradient.
  • If the velocity vector points into the domain, then we can

<-- Related issues to ParaView with OpenFOAM - Fixes and solutions

This blog post is for those users who want to build ParaView 3.10.1 that comes with OpenFOAM's ThirdParty, version 2.0.0/x. It's based on a previous blog post of mine: Building ParaView 3.8.0 with custom Qt 4.6.3

In case you don't know, ParaView 3.10.1 that comes with OpenFOAM 2.0.0/x, during ParaView's compilation, it states that only Qt 4.6 is supported... oh well . So, in case your...

Hi to everyone.
CFD field is increasing and expanding its reaches in every other field which includes automobiles, aerospace, chemical, infrastructure management etc.
Also many universities provide a full time course to do research in CFD field.
I was introduced to CFD at my masters project.
I did my masters project in CFD which involved CFD analysis for a data center. For this purpose I went into the basics of CFD and learned many new, interesting things. Also the modeling,...
