This is a blog post aimed to pass on the baton of the work I've done in the past to anyone who wants to pick it back up partially or completely, which I was still doing (or trying to do) until Hanging my volunteer gloves and moving to a new phase of my life.

  1. Generating version template pages and logos for said versions

OpenFOAM: Interesting cases of bad meshes and bad initial conditions

Posted September 15, 2013 at 06:03 by wyldckat

This year (2013) has been an interesting one for me, regarding OpenFOAM. Even beyond the amazing features that OpenFOAM 2.2 brought to the world (at least to my world) and everything that I keep discovering about it.

This blog post is about the various threads/posts were I took the time to diagnose what was specifically wrong with the case and where the bad results are astonishingly wrong... simply because the details were not easily seen. The list might get updated along time, as I...

<-- Related issues to ParaView with OpenFOAM - Fixes and solutions

Beginning with ParaView 3.12.0, a new method for building every single package that ParaView needs can be done via "SuperBuild", which is a sub-folder in the ParaView source code structure. The idea is simple:
  1. Run:
    or similar, such as ccmake or cmake-qt-gui.

Building OpenFOAM 2.0.1 on old Linux OSes - test case Ubuntu 8.04

Posted October 17, 2011 at 17:49 by wyldckat
Updated February 8, 2012 at 16:41 by wyldckat

This blog post will try to detail and complement the OpenFOAM 2.0.1 building process on old machines, where my test case was with two Ubuntu 8.04 - one i686 and one x86_64 - in two separate virtual machines with 1.6GiB of RAM and 4 processors each.

This post will detail a lot more information than the official instructions, specially because the official instructions are meant for Linux OSes that are modern'ish, such as Ubuntu 10.04 and above.

NOTE: 2011-02-08 - finally...
