    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.

    OpenFOAM introductory course

    As a user of OpenFOAM who received a lot of free help from the developers, I think that helping spreading the voice of the OpenFOAM training course is the minimum I can do. ICON organizes an introductory course to OpenFOAM  on Thursday 3rd April and Friday 4th April 2008, at Beaumont House, Windsor, UK. The main goals are: Introduce C++ within the OpenFOAM context Explore the OpenFOAM code structure and commonly used classes Analyse, modify and create basic solvers and utilities Understand and customise basic OpenFOAM libraries You can find further information on the ICON site.

    Contours plots with gnuplot

    Working in CFD, I often have to create contours plots starting from rough data in a text file generated by in house codes. This can be easily accomplished using gnuplot.

Being an openSUSE user, I will explain how to install gnuplot on this distribution, but the instructions to generate contours plots are absolutely general. The installation of gnuplot on openSUSE 10.3 is straightforward. Just use the 1-click install link available here, and follow the procedure shown by the installer. Gnuplot requires the data to be saved in a text file organized in one of the two following ways:…
