Hi All,

it is my first post here and I appreciate your help and support.

I am software engineer and I have very limited information about CFD stuff. I read a book "Introduction to Flight by John Anderson" and I am very interested to do simulations for few 3D plane models and extract parameters from it ( Lift, Drag, coeffecients, ... etc). If the simulation gave successful results, I will then model them and fly them using Ardupilot.

I don't want to use any cracked SW ( ansys, solidworks,...) so I kept searching till I found openFoam and paraview. I believe it is mature to fullfill my needs.

What I am missing is someone to put me on track for what I need to do to achieve my goals. I don't know actually how or from where to start.

It is very rare to find videos on Youtube to simulate Aerodynamics stuff with openfoam. Most videos are for commercial SWs ( Ansys,...).


any tutorials,suggestions, guidance,.. will be much appreciated.


Note: I can use FreeCAD to draw the airplane in 3D

Hi,

I hope you are still interested in learning about OpenFOAM

Please take a look at this collection of tutorials: https://wiki.openfoam.com/Tutorials

Best regards.
