renumberMesh options
I am testing the performance impact of using the renumberMesh utility and would like to try out the Sloan option that is hinted at in ...


I have read that the Sloan algorithm superior to the default CuthillMcKee for many types of matrices. I have not been able to locate and OpenSource implementation of the Sloan algorithm and was wondering what implementation was used during OpenFOAM testing.

Does anyone know where I can find an OpenSource implementation of the Sloan renumbering algorithm that works with the OpenFOAM renumberMesh utility?

Answered my own question. The OpenFOAM implementation of the Sloan algorithm depends on BOOST.

and how do you implement the BOOST function or where do I have to change to this algorithm?
