OpenCFD release OpenFOAM version 1.5

OpenCFD are pleased to announce a major, new release of version 1.5 of their OpenFOAM open source CFD toolbox. Version 1.5 contains:

* Applications
Numerous new and demonstration applications for multiphase flow and cavitation, buoyancy-flow and heat transfer, high speed flows and even molecular dynamics, accompanied by a range of new example cases.
* Automatic mesh generator
A new meshing utility that generates split-hex meshes automatically from surface geometry. It includes insertion of cell layers, flexible mesh refinement, robust surface handling and runs in parallel with load balancing.
* Utilities
Developments to utilities for mesh extrusion, mesh splitting, coupled patch handling, mesh conversion, handling of multiple particle clouds, case initialisation and post-processing.
* Libraries
Several new additions to model libraries including radiation modelling, rotating frame of reference, Lagrangian particle tracking, molecular dynamics and a mesh motion solver for flexible mesh scaling.
* General use
Improvements for simpler setup, running and post-processing of OpenFOAM cases, including new command line execution and argument features, dictionary directives and macro substitution and improvements to parallel scaling on larger number of processors.

For a full list of new features, see http://www.openfoam.org/doc/ReleaseNotes-1.5.html
