► CFD Online Site Up Again
  22 Apr, 2021
As you might have noticed the entire CFD Online site has been down since yesterday evening. It is now finally up and running again. I apologize about the down-time.

Before going to bed yesterday I was just going to run a quick OS-update on the servers. I have done this hundreds of times before, without any problems, but this time the virtual KVM-server running CFD Online refused to start.

Virtual servers are fantastic when they work. You can move your site between hardware nodes and it is easy to update things and create failover servers. But when a virtual KVM server does not start it is very frustrating.... your entire server is just a file, which it is difficult to do anything with.

I was unable to get the site up and running yesterday. But after a few hours of sleep I was finally able to get the server to boot today. It required some manual steps in the boot process. However, once the virtual server had come up everything went back to normal, and now it boots automatically when the hardware node is restarted, as it should.

I apologize about the down-time and the frequent re-boots this morning to debug this. But now I think everything works as it should again, and I am not planning any more reboots today.

If you notice anything that is not working as it should please report it here or via email to webmaster@cfd-online.com. If the site is down please report it as replies to our Twitter or Facebook pages.
► Question-and-answer based CAPATCHA activated
  21 Mar, 2021
We have had problems recently with bots that automatically register thousands of spam users. Clearly our text-based CAPATCHA system, where a new user has to enter a few distorted characters from an image, has been broken. I have instead today activated a questions-and-answers based CAPATCHA system using a bunch of CFD-related questions that most CFD engineers should have no problems with.

If you have problems to answer one of these CAPATCHA questions please let me know. We should have questions that are difficult to answer for spammers, but easy to answer for anyone interested in CFD.

OpenFOAM v9 Released - See Full Announcement

The OpenFOAM Foundation is pleased to announce the release of version 9 of the OpenFOAM open source CFD toolbox. Version 9 is a snapshot of the OpenFOAM development version which, through sustainable development, is always-releasable. It provides new functionality and major improvements to existing code, with strict demands on usability, robustness and extensibility.

OpenFOAM 9 includes the following key developments.
  • Multiphase: improved the performance, numerics and robustness of multiphase solvers.
  • Transport: muticomponent diffusion and the redesign of ThermophysicalTransportModels.
  • Thermophysical: automatic compilation of model packages, mixing rules, tabulated input.
  • Heat transfer: made calculations consistent between solvers, BCs and post-processing.
  • Particle tracking: cloud types selected by user, not hard-coded into solvers.
  • Reactions: improved robustness of numerics and chemistry and added general controls.
  • Mesh: refactored parts of snappyHexMesh, decomposition and manipulation tools.
  • Surface Film: introduced standard thermophysical modelling.
  • Function Objects: overhaul of packaged function objects for improved usability.
  • Models and Constraints: fvOptions replaced by more flexible fvModels and fvConstraints.
  • Case Configuration: enhanced scripts and added new Function2 functions of 2 variables.
  • Computation: improved robustness and performance of I/O, compilation, numerics.
  • Approximately 750 code commits, 200+ resolved issues.
  • ISO/IEC 14882:2011 (C++14): tested for GCC v5.4+, Clang v10+ (v4+ should also work).
OpenFOAM 9 is packaged for the following platforms, with ParaView 5.6 including Mesa with LLVM/Gallium acceleration for systems without a (supported) graphics card:
The OpenFOAM 9 Source Pack can be compiled on suitable Linux platforms.

► blueCFD-Core 2020-1 has been released
  14 Apr, 2021
Yesterday we at FSD blueCAPE Lda have released blueCFD-Core 2020-1, which provides OpenFOAM 8 as a native build for Windows, with OpenFOAM binaries acting as normal Windows applications.

The installer for blueCFD-Core 2020-1 is installed separately from blueCFD-Core 2017, therefore both installations can coexist.

Released elements are:
The source code provided for the port of OpenFOAM 8 has been released here, as well as of ThirdParty-8 here.
As mentioned above, the development infrastructure is based on MSys2 and instructions for developing in a clean installation of MSys2 will be provided at openfoamwiki.net, as soon as possible.
For a complete list of bug reports, issues and wishes that have been submitted to the blueCFD-Core project, see the Issue Tracker page. For example, a complete list of issues and tasks that were conducted for developping blueCFD-Core 2020-1, are available there: milestone blueCFD-Core 2020-1.


Disclaimers:
  • FSD blueCAPE is responsible for the development and maintenance of the blueCFD®-Core project.
  • blueCFD® is a registered trade mark of FSD blueCAPE Lda.
  • FSD blueCAPE Lda is an FS Dynamics company.
  • This offering is not approved or endorsed by OpenCFD Limited, producer and distributor of the OpenFOAM software via www.openfoam.com and owner of the OPENFOAM® and OpenCFD® trade marks.
  • blueCAPE Lda is a contributor to the OpenFOAM Foundation, but the majority of the specific modifications needed in the source code for running OpenFOAM natively on Windows, will not be accepted in the official releases of OpenFOAM by the OpenFOAM Foundation, mostly due to the maintenance overhead associated to supporting closed-source operating systems.

Addendum:
  1. We are very aware that we are already in the year 2021, given that in our numbering convention the version blueCFD-Core 2021 is reserved for OpenFOAM 9, which is estimated to be released sometime around June/July 2021.
  2. We will be publishing more information on how to sponsor the development of blueCFD-Core in the near future, in order to allow us to speed up developments and not be so far behind OpenFOAM Foundation's releases.
► Elmer-OpenFOAM library presentation on a webinar on April 1st
  31 Mar, 2021
Dear OpenFOAM users,

There is an webinar series on Elmer FEM in spring 2021. So far there has been general presentation by the Elmer team and now we are moving to contributed talks.

The next webinar will be given already tomorrow at 14 CET by Juris Vencels, the main developer of EOF library that enables Elmer and OpenFOAM to be linked efficiently via MPI. Good parallel scalability has been demonstrated by the library.

I thought this might be of interest for some OpenFOAM users who otherwise would not be bothered by finite elements. For magnetic field the Hcurl conforming basis functions offer some attractive features.

The webinar is free of charge. You can sign up for it here:

Best regards,
Peter

I am a graduate student majored in energy and thermal engineering and currently studying flame behaviours under extreme conditions in mesoscale combustors, simulations and numerical approches are needed to gain supplemental data for experiments in quantitative analysis. OpenFOAM provides a wide and diverse variety of tools for the realization of user-defined functions, hence is perferable to commercial CFD softwares.
