CFX or Fluent for Turbo machinery ?

Building Code Documentation on OpenFOAM 2.0.0/x

Posted June 24, 2011 at 18:06 by wyldckat
Updated August 30, 2014 at 08:18 by wyldckat (A note about Ubuntu 10.10 and above)

________________________________________
Note: I've discovered the other day, thanks to a fellow user of this forum, that Doxygen 1.7.1 on Ubuntu 10.10 does not build the code documentation for OpenFOAM 2.0. Nonetheless, a solution is already known (two actually) and is shown here: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post317304...
