OpenFOAM tutorials w/o foamX
Could you post links to tutorials for setting up OpenFOAM cases here, especially setting the boundary conditions for turbulent flow (with, e.g. k-eps model)?
What is the usual procedure? Do you always copy the directory-structure from a tutorial and modify it accordingly?
A very good tutorial using Salome as mesher can be found here:
However, the discontiniued foamX preprocessor is used in this video.
I am looking for typical BC set-up in the text files for different solvers (pisoFoam, simpleFoam, etc.).
I think this would be a nice place to collect a list of tutorials?
Greetings to all,
Kriz, I suppose what your looking for is a GUI for OpenFOAM. If you search about the reasons why FoamX was discontinued, you might find something like "most users were mainly editing with text editors" or "FoamX was too hard to get it working".
Anyway, as far as I know, currently there are (at least) 3 accessible GUI's avaliable:
I could now rant about how OpenFOAM is an hands-on software... but I guess that's not what you want to ear/read ;)
I agree, setting all necessary BC and solver settings via text is quite straight-forward with OF, however, I find it hard to specify for all variables instead of for the boundary-types. It would be much more convenient if I could set all boundary values and BC-type (for pressure, velocity, TKE, etc.) for type "inlet", "outlet" and whatever, and not having to add all my boundary types for each variable.
Also, the manual does not seem to cover all boundary-types, since I found a "freestream" BC somewhere in the tutorial-cases, that is not mentioned in the manual.
Is there a more-or-less complete list of the possible BC-types?
