I heard recently that a program similar to Fluent is public and open source. Have you heard such a program?

I'm am very interested in OpenFoam. Has anybody validated this code? Compared with fluent? What are your experiences with using OF?

Why don't you try the website at:

http://www.opencfd.co.uk/openfoam/

There will soon be a separate forum for OpenFoem here as well!

It a very good code. Not as easy to use as FLUENT, but it's far more versatile, if you need to add your user defined models because you have full access to the source code.

Best regards,

No. OpenFOAM works on Linux ;-)

However there is a discussion about ports on Windows and Mac on the forum hosted at

www.openfoam.co.uk

Best regards,

well you can run OpenFoam on windows under a virtual machine with Linux installed on it, you can try workstation 5 from VMware, Usually I do the other way, on a linux machine a run windows on a virtual machine, that works pretty well. The only problem is that it takes a very good hardware to do the job.
