Dear Foamers,

I developed a complete and non-official OpenFOAM guide for beginners, containing several tutorials to solve representative incompressible fluid mechanics problems for those who are starting to deal with OpenFOAM.

The guide is formed by 5 chapters (plane-parallel plates flow, 2D cylinder, circular pipe, NACA airfoil and a 3D aircraft), following an increasing degree of difficulty. The guide contains codes to solve the cases, images, advices to typical pitfalls and many more.

I made this guide as a part of my BSc Thesis. I learnt OpenFOAM while doing these tutorials and then I decided to share it with all of you, specially for those who start working with OpenFOAM.

Then I used it myself to start a study of the blood flow in the aorta (a human vessel) as the other part of my BSc Thesis. The aim was to compute the shear stress that blood causes to aorta walls. It exists relevant medical interest due to its relation with some cardiovascular diseases.

You can find the guide in:

http://the-foam-house5.webnode.es

This offering is not approved or endorsed by ESI Group or ESI-OpenCFD®,
the producer of the OpenFOAM® software and owner of the OpenFOAM® trade mark.

I hope you find it useful and do not hesitate to send me feedback about it!

elvis will become famous soon enough
Hello Jordi,

will your thesis be published on the web anytime?
I would like to know if you took the geometry of the aorta from CT,MRT or s.th. else and what tools you used for meshing later (SHM or s.th. else)

thanks for your tutorials any

greets elvis

Hello,

Yes, you can find it in the repository of the UPC (Polytechnic University of Catalonia).

I used a geometry (and boundary conditions) extracted from Magnetic Ressonance Images and I meshed it using SHM.

Thank your for your excellent work!

This is a treasure for people like me who know how to code but has no idea about the inner dynamics of OpenFOAM.

Thanks a lot! Even though your guide is now related to an older version of OpenFOAM, it is still quite helpful for my coaching purposes.

Hi!

Thank you very much for this xcellent guide!!

I tried to find your thesis in UPC but it was not possible...

Sorry to ask this but can you please share it with us?

Thank you very much!

Cheers

Thanks for this useful guide.

However, the problem is I am stuck at the Airfoil tutorial. I downloaded the case files and did the steps till editing boundary file. After I did the editing, my terminal says,
"Symmetry plane 'topAndBottom' is not planar.
At local face at (-1.984133 4.00012 0.0500015) the normal (0 1 0) differs from the average normal (0 0 0) by 1
Either split the patch into planar parts or use the symmetry patch type "

Can someone help me on how to fix this problem?
