GeekoCFD updated, GeekoCFD text mode released 4

I am pleased to announce the release of GeekoCFD 2.2.0, which brings an updated image with OpenFOAM® 2.0.x (x >= 1), an updated ThirdParty package for OpenFOAM and openSUSE security updates, including Firefox 5. The images can be downloaded from SUSE Studio. Additionally, GeekoCFD 2.2.0 brings a smaller version: GeekoCFD […]

Updated dynamicSmagorinsky code for OpenFOAM 2.0.x

The implementation of the dynamic Smagorinsky for OpenFOAM® in my git repository has been updated to build against OpenFOAM 2.0.x. Please, note that that this update breaks compatibility with OpenFOAM 1.7.x. A version of the code for OpenFOAM 1.7.x is available from the same repository, at commit c5b8d5d8a274ba702c68f1be75f31e8f2def81d7. This offering […]

GeekoCFD 2.1 now available

GeekoCFD 2.1 is now available in SUSE Gallery. This is a minor release, which provides the new version of Eclipse Indigo with CDT, instead of Eclipse Helios with CDT.Users who downloaded version 2.0.3 and are not interested in the latest version of Eclipse, can ignore this release, or, if they […]

OpenFOAM 2.0.x and openSUSE 11.4 60

OpenCFD® released OpenFOAM® 2.0.0, which brings many developments and improvements. In parallel to the release of OpenFOAM 2.0.0, the git repository was updated to 2.0.x. Usually I write a detailed procedure to explain the installation of OpenFOAM on openSUSE, however with OpenFOAM 2.0.0 this is not necessary anymore. Only a […]

Exporting mesh from Ansys Workbench to OpenFOAM 1

If you use Ansys® Workbench® to build your mesh, you probably noticed that the .msh file exported is binary, and cannot be converted properly by the OpenFOAM® converter fluentMeshToFoam. However there is a workaround. Simply set the variable export AWP_WRITE_FLUENT_MESH_ASCII=1 before launching workbench, or add it to your ~/.bashrc file. […]

Euler-Euler gas-solid flow solver for OpenFOAM 5

I have finally completed the implementation and the testing phases of a two-fluid code for the simulation of gas particle flows based on OpenFOAM®. The code is derived from the existing twoPhaseEulerFoam, with significant differences in the solution algorithm in order to stabilize it, and with the addition of a […]

Some update on twoPhaseEulerPimpleFoam

The development of twoPhaseEulerPimpleFoam proceeds well, and a good number of milestones, including Implementation of the conservative form of the momentum equation Implementation of the partial elimination algorithm Stabilization of the algorithm in the dense limit Boundary conditions for the particle phase Electrostatic model have been completed, and are under […]
