CFD Blog (1): OpenFOAM small bits: How to compile new solver

Posted December 27, 2021 at 11:42 by Ash Kot

Hello Engineers and Scientists,

(If this is your first time then you may like read it, or you can skip it if itís not your first time)

Being involved in CFD engineering and development/programming, I decided to dedicate some of the learning to community by writing through blog towards new budding CFD developers and engineers. So that new people donít have to start from scratch. In this blog series, I shall try to create link to connect my files over...

Turbomachinery Solver OpenFOAM

This forum has been a big source of information for me since I started doing CFD. Now, I want to share my work to thank your altruistic knowledge sharing. Regarding the main topic of this blog, I am going to talk about my first turbomachinery simulations with rhoSimpleFoam, the problems I found with this solver and my solution, which I called turboSimpleFoam. Feel free to ask me whatever you want or tell me if something is wrong.

Compilation of OpenFOAM v1912 with runTimePostProcessing

Posted July 17, 2020 at 07:08 by snak

runTimePostProcessing functionality is not available in precompiled packages of v1912.

I will note how to compile OFv1912 with runTimePostProcessing.

check the VTK version with the following command.

cat ParaView-v5.6.3/VTK/CMake/vtkVersion.cmake
If the version is 8.2.0, create a link with the name of VTK-8.2.0.

ln -s ParaView-v5.6.3/VTK/ VTK-8.2.0
Now, compile the VTK.

Baffles01 - createPatch & createBaffle

Posted July 21, 2018 at 11:48 by student666
Updated September 22, 2018 at 12:52 by student666

Objective: test cases for using following dicts:
  • createPatchDict
  • createBafflesDict

Preliminary steps:
  1. Run the Salome script for the geometry and surface mesh generation
  2. Export walls, inlet outlet inside cad/stl as STL (ASCII)
  3. Run the utility buildRegionSTL, it will create the constant/triSurface folder with buildRegionSTL.stl
  4. Export the interna mesh as interna.stl inside constant/triSurface

************Set up the SHM dict file for create Patch (highlights)...
