Hi everyone,

In the
Department of "Mathematical Modeling and Numerical Simulations", Institute of Mechanics - BAS, is developed a new finite volume algorithm for calculation of compressible fluid (SIMPLE-TS (Time Step). The algorithm is published in Journal of Computational Physics.
SIMPLE-like algorithms have one main disadvantages. They use the approximation drho/dt = (rho - rho^(n-1))/ht in the pressure equation. Because if this disadvantages the pressure equation

Updated December 8, 2013 at 09:37 by wyldckat (Added a few more links...)

Well, I've been meaning to this for a while now, so here goes - This a list of threads that could prove useful to new comers to OpenFOAM on how to build it as well as the Third Party tools.

Our trusty gcc compiler nowadays comes in flavours 4.4.x, 4.5.x and 4.6.0 was released a little while ago.
The official release of OpenFOAM 1.5 latest compatible gcc was 4.3.x. And you think to yourself: now what do I do?

Well, not to worry! After a request from the forum user kurne, I rolled up my sleeves and made a cookbook script of a hybrid OpenFOAM 1.5 with 1.7.x script...
