Somebody has already compare the computation results between OpenFOAM and Fluent in LES
What were they the conclusions?

thank you

Two students in the group I'm part of is working with OpenFOAM and previously worked with FLUENT and another in-house code on the same system, comparing the results to their PIV experiments.
It isn't really a comparison between FLUENT and OpenFOAM, because of some choice made during this work.

The results are not public yet, since they are writing papers on this and also their PhD thesis, however I can tell you the results obtained with OpenFOAM are very good, and compare well with PIV experiments.

What kind of system are you interested in simulating?

thank you for your answer.

I work on flows hydraulics under hulls of boats.

In which domain your works of thesis? / where?
When does your thesis have to be finished?

thank you

The work on LES is not mine, but of a couple of students in the same group where I work. I'm helping them a bit with OF.

One student works on the simulation of impinging jet reactors (hydrodynamics only; hydrodynamics with species transport), and compared LES with his PIV results. The other one did something similar in a different system configuration.

The work is going on at Iowa State University.

My thesis finished quite some time ago :-)
Theirs is coming to an end, but they have to publish their results. If you want, I can put you in touch with them. Just drop me an email (use the forum function to send me one).

Best,
