OF suitable for dynamic building simulation?
Hi everyone,
I am thinking about using openfoam as a platform to solve questions in building simulation, mainly involving natural convection in unheated (or only air heated) rooms as well as investigating how air-tight certain windows are.

I was wondering if some more experienced users could give me some advice on whether any openfoam solvers are suitable for these compressible fluid simulations with fluid-solid interactions.

I have done a thorough search on the internet but could not find much information on openfoam in building simulation - links etc. would also be appreciated.

Many Thanks,
