OpenFOAM v6 Released

From the Release Announcement...

The OpenFOAM Foundation is pleased to announce the release of version 6 of the OpenFOAM open source CFD toolbox. Version 6 is a snapshot of the OpenFOAM development version which, through sustainable development, is always-releasable. It provides new functionality and major improvements to existing code, with strict demands on usability, robustness and extensibility.

OpenFOAM 6 includes the following key developments.
  • Conjugate heat transfer (CHT): improved usability, with simplified set up and running.
  • Rotating/sliding geometries: more robust AMI, and support for periodic cases.
  • Particle tracking: optimised computation and improved robustness.
  • Reacting multiphase models: phase change, reactions, drag, breakup, coalescence, etc.
  • Reactions/combustion: faster, full algebraic Jacobian, significant code redesign
  • Other models: water waves and films, turbulence, thermophysics, atmospheric flows
  • General: new boundary conditions, function objects, improved code compilation, etc
  • Further tools for more productive CFD with OpenFOAM.
  • Approximately 750 code commits, 350+ resolved issues
  • ISO/IEC 14882:2011 (C++11): tested for GCC v4.8+, Clang v3.7+, Intel ICC v17.0.4+.
OpenFOAM 6 is packaged for the following platforms.
The OpenFOAM 6 Source Pack can be compiled on suitable Linux platforms.


OpenFOAM 6 was produced by:
  • Core Team (CFD Direct): Henry Weller (co-founder & lead developer); Chris Greenshields (co-founder), Will Bainbridge
  • Developers/Maintainers: Bruno Santos, Francesco Contino, Mattijs Janssens (co-founder), Juho Peltola, Fabian Schlegel, Ronald Oertel, Timo Niemi
