I'm very new to OpenFOAM so I am currently going through the tutorials on the OpenFOAM website so I can get a basic understanding of what is going on. However, the tutorials on their website only show a couple basic examples so I wanted to take a look at some more complicated stuff.

How do I go about running the circuitBoardCooling tutorial located under heatTransfer/buoyantSimpleFoam/circuitBoardCooling?

I tried following similar steps to the previous examples but it didn't work. I ran blockMesh from inside the circuitBoardCooling directory. Then I ran buoyantSimpleFoam and got a fatal error saying it could not find the file.

Now, I'm not sure if this is what I was supposed to do but I noticed in the Allrun file located also in the circuitBoardCooling directory it says to "cp -r 0.or 0" and then run createBaffles -overwrite.

Is this what I need to do to run this tutorial or am I not even close?

Thank you for taking the time to help this newb!

Hi BhaluBear!

I think you should run the ./Allrun scripts, or, if you want, manually execute the every steps in the scripts.

Best,

I was unaware you could actually run those "Allrun" scripts. What is the difference between the "Allrun" and the "Allclean" scripts?

Thanks for the help!

You can always look inside the Allrun and Allclean scripts to figure out what they are doing. You know they are nothing but shell scripts.

Best,
