Hello there,I am very much interested in learning OpenFOAM but I don't know where to start actually?
I am reading the user's guide and trying some tutorials given in it but i am unable to get most of the things such as:-
1.the format of a case
2.most of files as fvSchemes and fvSolution in cavity case
3.how to 'create' a simple case?(not from scrach but by copying most of the codes in exsisting cases)
5.how to choose a solver?

All these qustions and many more which confuse me.I just want to know a proper way to learn any CFD.

I would like to add that I am an average student studying in 2nd year of undergraduate course in mechanical engineering in India.I have fluid mechanics as one of the subject this semester so I am still not familier with most of fluid concepts and equations but I like this approch of learning both the things simultaneously cause I know at the end of this fluid mechanics course I still may lack in understanding some concepts.

Thank you,I appreciate your help.
