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: http://www.openfoam.org/mantisbt/view.php?id=590 - 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

Posted April 14, 2012 at 05:43 by wyldckat
Updated April 21, 2012 at 08:33 by wyldckat (updated current status)

The other day Tobi asked for my help on building http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...opensmoke.html
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...

ParaView 3.12.0 SuperBuild on OpenFOAM

Posted January 21, 2012 at 20:39 by wyldckat
Updated July 26, 2015 at 15:14 by wyldckat (r2 released. Revision made in May 26th 2013.)

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

Beginning with ParaView 3.12.0, a new method for building every single package that ParaView needs can be done via "SuperBuild", which is a sub-folder in the ParaView source code structure. The idea is simple:
  1. Run:
    Code:
    cmake-gui
    or similar, such as ccmake or cmake-qt-gui.
  2. Choose the "ParaVIew-3.12.0/SuperBuild" folder as the source code and pick some other folder as the folder for the building

Running OpenFOAM in parallel with different locations for each process

Posted December 15, 2011 at 17:56 by wyldckat

The other day a fellow forum user asked me for help about a problem dealing with the specific configuration of a case for running in a cluster. The specific configuration was simple: each slave machine of the cluster has it's own independent storage address on a similar path.
Below is an edited version of the reply I sent him.


OK, first detail - In the following file you have a (sort-of) well documented "decomposeParDict":
Code:

Building OpenFOAM 2.0.1 on old Linux OSes - test case Ubuntu 8.04

Posted October 17, 2011 at 17:49 by wyldckat
Updated February 8, 2012 at 17:41 by wyldckat

This blog post will try to detail and complement the OpenFOAM 2.0.1 building process on old machines, where my test case was with two Ubuntu 8.04 - one i686 and one x86_64 - in two separate virtual machines with 1.6GiB of RAM and 4 processors each.

This post will detail a lot more information than the official instructions, specially because the official instructions are meant for Linux OSes that are modern'ish, such as Ubuntu 10.04 and above.

NOTE: 2011-02-08 - finally...
