Hello Everyone!

I am a naval architect and I would like to learn how to use OpenFoam in oerder to estimate a ship's drag. I have never used CFD before and this is the first serious attempt.

I use OpenFOAM for windows through CFD support (cygwin, OF4win20.09). I already tried some of the tutorials (cavity laminar, cavity turbulent with k-epsilon model, dambreak, Pitz Daily) and I would like some help to locate understandable tutorials regarding multiphase flow for ship resistance calculation. I located the wigley files online, but I was not able to find enough documentation.

I am currently in the process of reading the user guide. Also to mention that i received fundamental knowledge on CFD theory while doing my Master's so I have a bit of perception on the matter (I hope).

Any full documented tutorial, in any format (text or video) would be of great help. If it is open also (non-paying) it would be much better.

Thank you all for your help!

P.S. it is my first post in the forum after months of lurking around so be gentle if this is the wrong thread!
