 April 3, 2021, 08:06 New book on OpenFOAM has been published (in Chinese) #1 Senior Member   Huang Xianbei Join Date: Sep 2013 Location: Yangzhou,China Posts: 302 Rep Power: 13 Hi, foamers: I'm pleased to announce that my new book 'OpenFOAM: From introduction to mastery' (OpenFOAM从入门到精通)has been published recently by China WaterPower Press （ISBN：9787517094425）. The book systematically introduced the basic theories of OpenFOAM, including numerical schemes, discretization, turbulence models, et al. In addition, we give some examples on the implementation of new boundary conditions, turbulence models, applications, et al. I think this book can help foamers, especially those who are new to this software. As it's my first time trying to write a book, I wrote it in Chinese. If the book performs well, I will write it in English in the future. Xianbei Huang Jun_93, watermelon and yzhang10 like this.

To be honest, it's my first time publishing a book. The whole procedure is not so clear to me, especially contacting with foreign publisheres, as I'm Chinese. In addition, it will be easier for me to receive feedbacks for further improvement of the book.

Thank you for your interest. I'm considering translating the book in the future.

 April 29, 2022, 10:30 #9 New Member   Evelyn Rodriguez Join Date: Apr 2022 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 4 hi, yes, the content of the book looks really interesting. I used a translator to translate from Chinese to English. This knowledge will definitely be useful to people who plan to work in this area or develop here. Many Asian writers first write in their native language and then in an international one. For example, when I was interested in the biography of Blaine Harden, I found out that he was originally from North Korea. Impressive, right? I found some of his books and decided to read them. My favorite one for me is "Escape from Camp". I even wrote a review on it https://freebooksummary.com/category...e-from-camp-14, you may read it if this theme is close to you. This is one of those works that have been translated from Korean into English. And just the topic is relevant in the world today. I think everything should work out for you too, thanks for your work and knowledge. Good luck
