► Forum News - Improved breadcrumbs, new OpenFOAM forums
  23 Jan, 2018
As you might have noticed we have improved the breadcrumb links available just under the top drop-down menu when you are visiting a forum. The breadcrumb now includes links to all preceding forums. This should hopefully make it easier to navigate up in the sub-forum tree.

We have also recently launched a new OpenFOAM forum for Community Contributions, you can find it here:

This forum is intended for discussions about open source extensions to OpenFOAM coming from the community. Each extension also has a Prefix and it is possible to filter the forum to only see threads about one extension/prefix. If you are missing an extension/prefix please send an email to or reply to this thread.

Our intention is also to under this Community Contribution forum add additional sub-forums for specific development groups. So far we have only added one development group.
► Spam filter problems - Forbidden, You Don't have permission to access ...
    9 Dec, 2017
We have for some time now been running quite restrictive spam filers on our servers. This has reduced our spam problems significantly. However, our spam filters also sometimes give normal users problems. Two things can happen if you are blocked by our spam filters:

1. You will be completely locked out and you will not be able to access any page on for a certain period

2. You will when you try to do something on CFD Online get an error message saying something like:



You don't have permission to access ....
If you are having problems with our filters please contact us directly via email to Describe what problem you have and what you were doing when the problem occured. Please also tell us your IP number, which you can look up on for example
► Updated Forum Apps for Android and iOS / iPhone / iPad
  18 Oct, 2017
We have now updated both of our forum apps. The new version of the app is a major release based on a new code-base, with many improvements and hopefully a better user interface. It should be both faster and more bug-free.

The Android version can be found on Google Play here:

The iOS / iPhone / iPad version can be found on Apple App Store here:

As always the Forum app is free to everyone.

One thing that we have changed is that this app now no more by default includes a special app-footer when you post a message from within the app. This footer irritated some users and it fills no real purpose. I don't think that I liked it myself either. I want to decide myself if I have a footer in my posts and what I write in it.
► CFD Online Privacy Policy
  12 Sep, 2017
Please find CFD Online's Privacy Policy here:

This privacy policy was created since we received a request by Google to clearly specify CFD Online's user data policy in a privacy statement.
► Intrusion in the CFD Online Forums
  26 Aug, 2017
We have discovered that someone has been able to compromise the forums on CFD Online. Our forum user-database was most likely stolen and this database contained encrypted forum passwords (the stored passwords were both hashed and salted before stored, but the random salt was also available in the user-database). The hash algorithm used is fairly reliable, and was used twice with the random salt, but there has been reports of possible weaknesses, so someone might be able to decrypt the passwords. Hence, we ask everyone to please change your passwords.

All registered users should have received an email asking you to please change your password in the forums. If you remember your password you can do this in the User Panel > Edit Email and Password section here: If you have forgotten your password you can request a new one to be set and emailed to you at

In addition to the stolen user-database the intruder was also able to install his own Google AdSense advertisements in the forum threads. These ads were quite annoying and were not visible for administrators or moderators, so it took some time for us to discover them. This also happened in the middle of our vacation time. These annoying ads were available from July 28 until August 21.

If you have any questions or comments about this please do not hesitate to contact us at

We are very sorry about this incident and would like to sincerely apologize to all of our fantastic users.
► Hotmail/Outlook/Live Email Problems
  12 Jul, 2017
We have for several years had problems with email accounts at Hotmail/Outlook/Live (all run by Microsoft). Emails sent to these systems have sometimes been automatically deleted by Microsoft. We had a way to avoid this by registering as a safe sender, but this has not worked lately. This has caused big problems for users who try to register on the Forums, since to activate your forum account you must click on a link in an email sent to you when registering. If Microsoft has deleted this email there is no way to activate your forum account.

We have been in contact with Microsoft and they should now be accepting our emails again. However, the emails might end up in your spam folder. If you find that our emails are put in your junk folder then please make sure that you mark them as "not junk" to help keep Microsoft's spam rating correct. If you have tried to register but have not received the activation email you can ask for a new to be sent here:

This problem is caused by lazy CFD Online users who are subscribed to forum threads etc. and instead of unsubscribing from the threads they do not want any notifications from they mark our emails as spam. If enough people do this Microsoft will eventually decide that all emails are spam. This will make Hotmail/Outlook/Live accounts useless for CFD Online users (forum users can't register, registered users can't ask for password resets, subscriptions are not working, ...)

► OpenFOAM 5.0 Released
  26 Jul, 2017
The OpenFOAM Foundation is pleased to announce the release of version 5.0 of the OpenFOAM open source CFD toolbox. Version 5.0 is a snapshot of the OpenFOAM development version that is “always-releasable” quality, through rapid-turnaround feedback between code maintainers and users. It provides new functionality and major improvements to existing code, with strict demands on usability, reliability and maintainability. It is produced for the benefit of all users, rather than a handful of commercial organisations.

Version 5.0 is a new major version release in which some backward compatibility to OpenFOAM version 4 is not maintained (requiring some changes to case input files), containing 816 code commits since version 4.0. OpenFOAM 5.0 uses all features of the ISO/IEC 14882:2011 (C++11) standard, and has been tested with C++ compilers that conform to that standard, such as GCC v4.8+, Clang v3.7+ and Intel ICC v17.0.4+.
OpenFOAM 5.0 is distributed under the General Public Licence by the OpenFOAM Foundation for:
Multiphase for Marine/Offshore Engineering
  • Wave Modelling: implemented boundary conditions for applying waves at an inlet that meets standards of code quality, maintainability and licensing
  • Wave Initialisation: new setWaves utility for initialising waves
  • Wave Damping: new verticalDamping fvOption damps the vertical motions of an interface in the region approaching an outlet to avoid reflections
  • Data Processing: a interfaceHeight function object reports height of a phase interface from a set of locations
  • Hull: new interfaceCompression boundary condition improves cases where a fluid interface hits a surface at shallow angle
Further Information: “Water Waves in OpenFOAM”.

General Multiphase
  • Performance/Numerics: increased robustness of multiphase solvers through improved inflow/outflow boundary conditions; better restart and more efficient Crank-Nicolson implementation for interFoam family of solvers; introduced a limiter to stabilise the interfacial pressure work term in the energy equation for multiphase flows; improved mass conservation in compressibleInterFoam using continuity error correction; improved calculation of MULES limiter at walls; for setWaves, generalised tetrahedron and triangle cutting, enabling cutting with level-sets as well as planes; added functions for volume averaging of discontinuous fields

  • Data Visualisation: updated the native OpenFOAM reader module for ParaView version 5.4.0; maintenance of the native reader module ensures continued trouble-free visualisation of OpenFOAM data.
  • Command Line Interface: added Bash [TAB] completion to all OpenFOAM applications and scripts; added -list... options, e.g. -listScalarBCs in solvers for more relevant listing of BCs, fvOptions, turbulence models, etc (as a replacement to foamList), see User Guide 5.2.3; enabled applications running with the -doc option, e.g. paraFoam -doc, to open the application documentation at
  • Case Management: foamCloneCase can now clone cases from configuration directories, and copy script files and 0.orig directories; major maintenance of scripts, improving -help option and POSIX compliance
  • Inlet and outlet: generalised the swirlInletVelocity boundary condition to reads individual velocity components as Function1; new matchedFlowRateOutletVelocity boundary condition which matches the flow rate at outlet to a corresponding inlet
  • User Input: input syntax for fvOptions has been made much more user-friendly; made ...Coeffs sub-dictionaries optional for input model parameters; standardised notation in input parameters in radiation boundary conditions
  • Parallel Computation: added -copyZero option to decomposePar to copy the 0 directory to processor directories, to avoid field/mesh inconsistencies, especially when generating the mesh in parallel; integrated much faster, scalable reconstructParMesh
