Well, the title is incomplete... the idea here is to gather the links to the posts where I try to correlate hardware performance versus computational performance with CFD software.

Posts where I've tried to do the math:

Ideas on managing a repository that supports several OpenFOAM versions

Posted November 1, 2014 at 14:17 by wyldckat

It's been some time since I last blogged something about OpenFOAM. Most of my free time that I allocate to OpenFOAM-related topics has been more oriented to helping out on the forum and to write the most that I can on the unofficial OpenFOAM wiki: - and Twitter is a bit quicker to micro-blog about stuff, so check out my Twitter feed as well:

Anyway, today I received a question through a private message asking about ideas on how to...

OpenFOAM: Interesting cases of bad meshes and bad initial conditions

Posted September 15, 2013 at 06:03 by wyldckat

This year (2013) has been an interesting one for me, regarding OpenFOAM. Even beyond the amazing features that OpenFOAM 2.2 brought to the world (at least to my world) and everything that I keep discovering about it.

This blog post is about the various threads/posts were I took the time to diagnose what was specifically wrong with the case and where the bad results are astonishingly wrong... simply because the details were not easily seen. The list might get updated along time, as I...

This is yet another one of my "rants on my blog" I do once in a while.

So today I was trying to reproduce this report: - I was curious about this, because ICC is known for having great optimization on Intel processors (or at least it had in the past), as well as being completely free for non-commercial use on Linux.

The detail here is that I don't have an Intel CPU on my home computer. I've got an AMD 1055T x6 ...

libOpenSMOKE - Making it work once again with OpenFOAM

The other day Tobi asked for my help on building
After looking at the code and doing some trial and error, basing myself also on Tobi's already collected information, I managed to get it built/working with OpenFOAM 1.7.x, 2.0.x and 2.1.x.

And since the original page only provided a rarball (on Linux?) of the source code, I decided to use my github account to harbor the original code along...
