How to learn OpenFoam for a new user
I am a new user of OpenFoam, and very intersted in it. However, it is difficult for me to learn it only by its User Guide and Programing Guide. I tried to understand its codes, and I found that it is not a easy job due to limited remark. Can someone give some suggestion? Thanks in advance!
Check out the overheads under Basic training at http://www.openfoamworkshop.org/2009/4th_Workshop/
I'd suggest first going though the tutorials in the user guide.
Then once you have a decent understanding of the structure and some basic FOAM utilities, start looking at some code. There are some simple test examples for the openfoam primitives under app/test .
After that, my suggestion would be to pick an app or library that is relatively simple, and start taking it apart, implement one change and understand how it works.
Goodluck and welcome to the world of OpenFOAM!
