Dear all,
I am a freshie and is trying to use OpenFOAM, so I have a question that whether I could use finete area method in official OpenFOAM 2.2.X. Is there some tools similar to the faMesh in openfoam-ext, such as surfMesh in official OpenFOAM 2.2.x?
Could some one give me any guidance or literiture?
Thanks a billion.

Hi,

a "Finite Area Method"-equivalent Method in OF was intruduced in Version 2.0.0 called "Surface film" , but some people believe it is not as good as FAM, but that was the opinion from someone who is very biased as he is a extend developer.

I do not know, but you can install Extend 3.1 and OF 2.3 side by side. There is a Help page on http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Main_Page but I do not have a direct link

Dear Elvis,
Thank you for the quick and detailed reply!
I think I will try to learn about Extend 3.1. To ask this question just because I am afraid I can not handle Extend 3.1.
Still I have a question that you say Surface film sat intruduced in Version 2.0.0, does it mean I have to install OF2.0.0, or it is also included in OF2.2.x?
Thank you again for all help!
Best Wishes!
Detian
