manual/documentation/guide/tutorial/andanythingelse
 
Hi Folks,

how most of you experienced it is no fun starting with OF since there is no real manual like for other Programms.

I would like to start a collection of manuals/documentations so that it will be more easy to find things.

I got so far:


userguide and programmersguide here:

http://www.opencfd.co.uk/openfoam/doc/index.html


desciption of dieselfoamtut:

http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~hani/kur...ered_NL_HN.pdf



overview over classes and namespaces best with doxygen.



overview (with short description) over solvers:

http://www.opencfd.co.uk/openfoam/fe....html#features



parafoam:

http://www.paraview.org/

---------------

If i want to set up a case i need more detailed information as to:

Which boundary conditions can i use & what do they mean ( my best shot so far):

UG : 5.2.4
(here they tell you to look @ FOAM_SRC/finiteVolume/fields/fvpatchfields/derived , which is not where you find it in my OF :mad:. also finding the right file is still not usefull as you have an overview, but no comment to the correct use)

Which are the correct values/boundarys in "0" (for p, u, T...) and how do they go with the boundary conditions ??
(now answer here, so far...)

How do I use blockmesh (like setting up in polarcoordinates, ...)
UG: 136 says --> OpenFoam1.6/cellmodells.
Which is NOT usefull.

and so on...


i think it is really anoying that i have to gather pieces all the time...since i have read a hint about it somewhere, but there is no overview and no complete documentation to one topic..
A would like a proper manual a lot!
A collection where to look things up would be a small improvement, which i am trying to make here.

hope you participate!

Hi,

I would definitely add the PhD courses (from Chalmers)
and another common repository for OpenFOAM® holding some very good PhD and student theses, papers and slides
best regards,

Stop complaining!
What is really annoying are guys like you who are not even informed what is going on but who are dictating what needs to be done.

If you need more documentation for your studies, tough luck. Change to economics, so that you can soon boss others around.

If you want to continue, get it into your head that you are asking a favor. And you won't get help if you repeat what a bad job the developers have done who are providing you the software for free, because they didn't document it especially for your needs.

I should calm down, so please don't reply. Thank you for understanding.
Robert

Hi Robert,

i would like to inform myself about everything...but i have to do other work.
I was trying to get into OF quickly, so i came up with some issues regarding the doc (if you look at posts above, some others did also).
I also mentioned that the programm seems to be great! But the doc. is not that great, which seems to be a fact (see "documantion project" threat).
I did not dictate anyone something, i asked for contributions to my collection ( ok and i complained, sorry for that!)...
And where is the dictating in "hope you participyte ! " ??
A proper doc is available for other cfd software.. and the software is not that great...

I had to reply, sorry for that, so i could calm down a little...
