Hi all
I am new in using openfoam and just installed the last version under Ubuntu (my first touch with linux...)
I tried some of the test cases and now like to make a calculation of a hull in the water.
To be sure to have all files in the right place and to have setup the software completly I would like to run a case which I can be sure of to be correct.
Can someone give me a link to a samplecase for a hull incl mesh data for me to test my installation.
Doesn't need to be complex just reliable (e.g. Wighley).
Many Thanks!

Greetings Ingenieur5 and welcome to the forum!

Have you studied the 3 tutorial cases from the User Guide? http://www.openfoam.org/docs/user/tutorials.php
If not, start by studying them, starting from the page shown on the link above.

As for a "wigley hull", have a look at the tutorial "multiphase/LTSInterFoam/wigleyHull". To run it:
Code:
cd $FOAM_RUN
cd tutorials/multiphase/LTSInterFoam/wigleyHull
./Allrun
Best regards,
Bruno

Bruno, the link was corrupted: http://www.openfoam.org/docs/user/tutorials.php

Ingenieur5, for the commands of Bruno to work, you have to first copy (all) tutorials into your $FOAM_RUN directory (as described in the above link)

Thanks for the info!
I found the tutorial and just started as described.
How long does it take for the calculation usually?

regards

It works!
Installation seems to be OK. Will now try my own model.
Thanks again!
