Book recommendations for OpenFOAM?
I've dabbled a bit with OpenFOAM in the past and I'd like to use it seriously in future. My mathematical background is deficient but my C++ background should be adequate, I think.
I am seeking recommendations for books to be used for self-study that will help me use OpenFOAM to simulate internal flows in machinery with periodically varying geometry.
I have already ordered Mary L. Boas's (MSRIP) 3rd edition "Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences" in order to try to remedy my mathematical inexperience. (Also the relevant Schaum's book.)
I see a book on Amazon called simply OpenFOAM which has no reviews - it seems to be an edited compilation of what is available for free on the net.
Do any of you have recommendations for books that will help me?
Greetings R. Graham and welcome to the forum!
A quick disclaimer: I'm primarily replying to your post, because I searched in Amazon about that "OpenFOAM" book and I got alarmed about it's pseudo-fake publisher. Other than that, I'll try to at least give some starting suggestions, although I personally don't know any particular book that will help you directly to your issue.
So I hope more experienced OpenFOAM users can post better responses than mine...
And with a bit more investigation, all of their books are just high priced paper made paperweights!
As for suggestions about books for OpenFOAM, AFAIK there aren't any yet about OpenFOAM specifically. Nonetheless, there are efforts being made to develop one, being done by the Extend-Project community: http://www.extend-project.de
So for now, if you really want books, then you'll have to aim for books about CFD. A bit of search here in the forum with the keyword "book" and limited to the OpenFOAM forum, I discovered this one:
Other than that, I suggest that you also check the suggestions made in these threads:
Thanks for the welcome, Bruno, and for the suggestions.
I was just looking around at the footprints I've left on the web and noticed that I hadn't responded to your message.
I'll be interested to see what SGI does with OpenFOAM.
