opencfd is on a distinguished road
ESI OpenCFD Ltd. is pleased to announce the release of OpenFOAM-v2012.

The version released in December 2020 brings a lot of exciting new functionality and extension to the existing ones. Let us, among others, highlight a few:

In Meshing:
  • SnappyHexMesh - New thicknessModel allowing more precise y+ control in the first-cell layer
  • SnappyHexMesh - Improved control of gap refinement
  • extrudeMesh - New polyLine extrusion model allows to specify more exiting extrusion path
  • blockMesh - Improved write-vtk command-line option and simplified edge definition

In Numerics:
  • User selectable schemes for high aspect-ratio meshes
  • Lagrangian flow has improved particle tracking on moving meshes
  • MPPIC sub-models have been transferred to kinematic cloud to improve performance and allow interaction with moving meshes
  • Function1 allows setting of a period (more intuitive for slow oscilations)

In Solvers, Physics and Boundary Conditions:
  • New vibro-acoustics solver using finite area model to solve a thin vibrating shell
  • Improved turbulence treatment on the phase interface to reduce spurious velocities for interFoam and interIcoFoam
  • Viscosity models were generalized for easier implementation of new non-newtonian models
  • New buoyancyTurbSource implemented to incorporate effects of buoyancy on turbulence in incompressible and compressible flows
  • New ACMI scaling option can be used to control coupling and blockage behaviour (simple model of a closing valve)
  • Improved outletMappedUniformInlet inlet BC

Many new features and improvements could be found in the post-processing, improved functionality of redistributePar utility.

Compiler configuration and the installation scripts were improved as well.

OpenFOAM is distributed as:
  • Source code
  • Precompiled packages for:
    • Ubuntu
    • RedHat/Fedora/CentOS
    • OpenSUSE
    • Windows 10 Linux Sub-system (Ubuntu)
  • Cross-compiled executables for MS Windows 10
  • Docker container
