Open Foam for Mold Flow analysis

Posted March 20, 2010 at 10:12 by KyleL

Hello all and welcome to my blog.

It appears to me after going through most of the tutorials that Open Foam is the ideal candidate for an open source mold flow analysis tool.
Open Foam is a very powerful, robust C++ library for computational programming.I see no reason why Open Foam can not be just as popular as the bigger names,i.e. MOLDFLOW & FLOW-3Din injection moulding, and even easier to use.The best benefit would be the support of the open source community and our willingness to share code as well as improve on existing code without the need for monetary gain.

I am a relative newbie to Open Foam and definitely not a programmer. But that does not mean that I can not contribute to the testing and evaluation of any ideas, thoughts or processes

I look forward to working with any of you that might be interested in doing the same.

Kyle L.
