A beginner question
I am a CFD person but have no experince with OPENFOAM at all. Could you please let me know the following?
1) How long it takes to learn and be able to run a simple flow problem (e.g., flow past cylinder), including mesh making?
2) Can I use a Fortran code to call OPENFOAM?
Your input is greatly appreciated.
Go and see
The story changes if you have to change the code, and at that point I would recommend to either take a course from OpenFOAM developers or be prepared to spend a good amount of time exploring and learning the code details.
I mean to call executables, this post is from me to thread " How to interface a Fortran thermodynamic tool with OpenFOAM?"
I have couple of fortran.90 subroutines which I would like to call from OpenFOAM1.6. What I know direct call of fortran subroutine from c++ is not good. Thus, one has to have C interface to routines and some more technical difficulties as, fortran stores rowwise C stores columnwise :confused: Whatever, these are general problems of C++ and Fortran mixing. My questions are more OpenFOAM specific:
1) What should be the compiled fortran source codes, dynamic library, shared objects (.so), objects (.o) ... ? If more than one is good, which one performs better?
2) How should be this "executables" (compiled files) linked to OpenFOAM, let's say scalarFoam? How should the <file> and <options> in Make folder be modified?
Please no suggestion like "why don't you rewrite your subroutines in C++" ;-)
All the best,
@ Cyp: You see, I am chasing you ;-)
