Hi all,


I do have openfoam v8 running on my machine. But I also like to use the Immersed Boundary Method's implementation on foam-extend-4.1.



Can I have both openfoam v8 and foam-extend-4.1 installed on the same machine?


Best regards,
- Mert

Yes, Just use alias for switching between versions.

Dear Ashutosh,


Thanks to your hint and the following link, I could get both of them working on my machine.
