Hi,

Validation is nothing but the comparision of your practical values, analytical value and simulated (numerically computed) value.

I suggest you to start with the simple flow cases, like flow through a pipe, lid driven cavity flow etc., or otherwise, take a simple case of flow from your fluid-mechanics book and try to simulate in the software <OpenFOAM>.

compare the results given in your book and results obtained from the simulations. If results closely agree then your simulations are validated !!!
Enjoy !!

Thanks and Regards,
Adarsh Tiwari
