What you will learn from this book
- Understand OpenFOAM® Case Setup
- Lear Post Processing, Visualization, and Data Sampling
- Master design overview of the OpenFOAM® library
The use of the OpenFOAM® toolkit for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is widely spread across industrial and academic environments. Compared to using proprietary CFD codes, the advantage of using OpenFOAM® lies in the Open-Source General Public License (GPL) licensing which allows the user to freely use and freely modify a modern high-end CFD code.
This book is an effort to describe the different facets of OpenFOAM® in a single place, thus providing a starting point for the beginner user, and act as a reference for an intermediate or experienced user.
This book covers two main aspects of working with OpenFOAM®: using the applications and developing and extending the library code.
In the first part of the book, we chose a few utilities and applications to describe the OpenFOAM® work flow. This information should provide a sufficient starting point for the reader, who can investigate his/her interests further by following the provided instructions in a similar way for another solver or application. We have also provided an often missed general overview of the interplay between different toolkit elements involved in a CFD simulation using OpenFOAM® in hope to produce a top-view perspective of this complex CFD software to the reader. The second part of the book describes how one can program with the OpenFOAM® library in a sustainable way using often encountered programming examples. We have tried to present the numerical background and software design of the specific programming example, together with its solution, hoping that the deeper understanding of the example will prepare the reader for other future programming tasks he or she may encounter.
This book is currently available as a RAW (Read As we Write) book. A RAW book is an ebook, and this one is priced at 20% off the usual eBook price. Once you purchase the RAW book, you can immediately download the content of the book so far, and when new chapters become available, you will be notified, and can download the new version of the book. When the book is published, you will receive the full, finished eBook.
If you like, you can preorder the print book at the same time as you purchase the RAW book at a significant discount.
Since a RAW book is an eBook, a RAW book is non returnable and non refundable.
Local taxes may apply to your eBook purchase.
A step-by-step guide.
Who this book is for
This book is for C++ developers who want to develop CFD programs with the help of OpenFOAM® library. No knowledge of OpenFOAM® or computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is expected.
