Good afternoon,

I have been posed a strange question, and I would like to be confirmed, before I answer it.

The background is that I am going to publish a paper based on work using the extend branch. During the proof-process with the publisher they have requested manufacturer information on the extend version of OpenFoam.

My answer would be that the extend version is not registered with any company, individual, foundation, etc. Therefore, I would simply reply that it is a community driven branch of OpenFoam (or something along those lines).

Any comments are greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Niels

Hi Niels,

I guess that chapter "1 Overview" in the ReleaseNotes.txt is a pretty precise information on the extend version of OpenFoam

http://sourceforge.net/p/openfoam-ex...leaseNotes.txt

1 Overview

-----------

The foam-extend project is a fork of the OpenFOAM速 open source

library for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). It is an open

project welcoming and integrating contributions from all users and

developers. Previously known as OpenFOAM速-dev and OpenFOAM速-extend,
it contains bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as

extensions and additional features provided by community

contributors (see file ListOfContributors),

Hello,
I succesfully used foam-extend-3.1 for my masters' thesis work. Actually, I would like to know in which way I should cite your software distribution since I didn't find any clear reference for that.

The last post was partially exhaustive because I'd like to know firstly if I should refer to "openFOAM-ext" or "foam-extend" or "openFOAM Extend".

Thank you in advance,
I really appreciated your work with this software.

Regards

Hi,

Refer to it as FOAM-extend, or if you include the version number: FOAM-extend-3.1.

Hi,

After reading this post and OpenFOAM wiki (https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...oam-extend-3.1), I am still not sure which branch/tag is right for me.

Code:
git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/openfoam-extend/foam-extend-3.1 foam-extend-3.1
cd foam-extend-3.1
git show-ref --head
gives, among other references:

Code:
1dd681f6e9430f3a49b7b69caf99649b5f23cf86 refs/remotes/origin/master 
6c0c77dee21ac095fb7b430dcf93a8f16e3ac412 refs/tags/3.1 
7d8e040bf53d952f86a4f1c2ff073ab3c6abc006 refs/tags/3.1.1 
094e842fc0b0285ca5e39aeb081fa9056dfefb94 refs/remotes/origin/nextRelease
Could you please explain what are each of them?

P.S.: A similar question regarding foam-extend-3.2 can be found here

Kind regards,
Thomas

Hi,

"which branch/tag is best for you" depends on what you want.

First I wonder if you would perhaps rather go for the most recent version of FOAM-extend. That is now in a new repository, in order to further separate the FOAM-extend for from the vanilla version:
https://sourceforge.net/p/foam-extend/wiki/Home/

The most recent version is 4.0, which (unfortunately) resides under 3.2. Click on Git and choose foam-extend-3.2.
You can see that there is a master branch, a nextRelease branch, and a tag 3.2. There is unfortunately no tag 4.0, but you can consider the nextRelease branch as the most recent 4.0 version.

To get the most recent version you do the following:
mkdir $HOME/foam
cd $HOME/foam
git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/foam-extend/foam-extend-3.2 foam-extend-4.0
(note that it says 4.0 at the end)
cd foam-extend-4.0
git checkout nextRelease

Then you have the most recent source code, and you can use "git pull" to get updates. The rest is to compile it as usual.

You can have a look at my installation instructions here:

Dear Håkan,

Thank you for your reply and for the link to the installation instructions. The link, however, is protected by a login page of Chalmers University.

I have summarized my conclusions about the relationship between those branches and tags in another post.

Kind regards,
Thomas

I updated the link in my previous post. It seems like I get different URL's if I am logged in to our learning platform or if I am not logged in. The page is open to public.
