Advanced Open-Source CFD Tool

OpenFOAM is a leading open-source software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD), known for its extensive capabilities and flexibility. It's a vital tool for modeling fluid flow, turbulence, heat transfer, and related physical processes.

Key Features and Capabilities

  • Finite Volume Method: Employs this method for solving partial differential equations.

  • Versatile Formulations: Supports RANS, LES, and DNS for various simulation fidelities.

  • Solver Variety: Includes both pressure-based and density-based solvers.

  • Scalability: Ideal for large-scale simulations and complex geometries.

  • Multiphysics Capabilities: Simulates fluid-structure interaction, heat transfer, and reactive flows.

  • Radiation Modeling: Implements the Discrete Ordinates (DO) model.

  • GPU Support: Enhances computations for complex models.

How to Run a OpenFoam simulation:

This example demonstrates how to run a simple simulation using OpenFoam. We utilize MotorBike tutorial provided on OpenFoam OpenFoam GitHub, from which you'll need to download the zip file Additionally, you should create (or download) the file that prepares and runs the simulation inputs.

Steps to Execute on Our Platform

  1. Upload Files: Click on the folder icon next to the Volume line and upload both and to the working directory (/data) of your project.
  2. Set Project Directory: Make sure the Project Directory is set to /data (or the mounted volume to entered!).
    1. if you want to change the Project Directory, make sure to apply the changes in the accordingly.
  3. Configure Run Script: In the Run Script field, enter as the input.
  4. Create the Project: Click on Create to prepare your project environment.
  5. Run the Container: Go to the project tab and Start the container to run the script.

You can visualize the simulation results using Paraview, as listed in our software catalog. Paraview offers an interactive desktop environment, enabling effortless visualization of the results. This powerful tool allows for detailed analysis and interpretation of simulation data, enhancing your understanding and presentation of the findings.
