How would you like openFoam to be?
I know many companies/private users have "their own openFoam version" that was customized for their need…
So, I would like us to share our ideas about how would you like openFoam to be.
In my mind, for instance, I would really appreciate not having to set the boundary conditions in many different files (U, P, K, nu…) but to have, instead, one single file in which to the every boundary condition at once.
its easy you can use, changeDictionary option in OpenFOAM, then you can put all your boundary in One file look at chtMultiRegionFoam tutorials
1) Relevant equations in solvers include sources as fields; I mean, e.g., in the example of
icoFoam with temperature http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ho...ure_to_icoFoam , the temperature equation could include a heat
+ fvm::div(phi, T)
- fvm::laplacian(DT, T)
+ Q // heat source
2) A small convenience (IMHO): separate input and output data. Currently, the case folder
has the following subfolders before running a solver:
After running the solver, this folder looks like this:
(zillion subfolders for time steps)
These intermediate time steps could be put into a separate subfolder, like this:
|All times are GMT -4. The time now is 00:05.|
