Hi All,

I want to use OpenFOAM on a Windows machine. I have installed the Oracle Virtualbox (and Ubuntu on this virtualbox). Then installed the latest version 2.1.1 of Open FOAM. In the home folder I have a folder with name "OpenFOAM" which contains "user-2.1.1" --> "run"-->"tutorials"-->"basic"; "combustion",....and so on. Can someone please explain me how to run a Tutorial. I am unble to get stareted. Please help me.

Thanks in advance

Usually,

each tutorial folder contains a `AllRun' file, which is executable.

Just open a termina, change directory until the right one and then digit "./AllRun" (without the quotes!)..

Is that clear?

As soon as this works you probably will like to do the different steps on your own.
For this, open the Allrun-file with a text-editor of your choice. In most cases each line is a command. Execute each line on its own and see what it does.

Maybe I find some time to write some basic information on what the different commands do, but I think everything should be in the Users-Guide as well, if I remember correctly.
You will find the users-guide in OpenFoam/doc/guidesa4/usersguide.pdf or so. The folder "doc" is one of your mightiest friends within OpenFoam. ;-)
