icoDyMFoam on openFoam 1.7.1

Register Blogs Members List Search Today's Posts Mark Forums Read

This Blog will describe the process of creating a case that solves the rotation of a square with an incompressible solver. The project is already done and the information will be added to the blog in the near future.

The steps that are going to be explained are:
- Creating icoDyMFoam (incompressible dynamic mesh solver) from pimpleDyMFoam. IcoDyMFoam already exists in older versions of OpenFoam, however, it was created since version 1.7.1 does not include it.
- Solving movingCone tutorial with icoDyMFoam.
- Modifying cavity tutorial by: Adding a square obstacle in the middle.
- Solving the modified cavity case displacing the square.
- Solving the modified cavity case rotating the square.
- Run the application in parallel

If you are interested in some of the topics above, do not hesitate and contact me. As I said, it has already been developed and the information will be posted shortly.

icoDyMFoam on openFoam 1.7.1

Posted January 9, 2011 at 14:49 by McCarra

To create the new solver in openFoam version 1.7.1, pimpleDyMFoam is used as a guideline. Original icoFoam, included in the release, will be modified by adding all the code related to mesh motion management present in pimpleDyMFoam.

This process will be detailed step by step in further entries.
