An Open Source CFD Solver
Posted Mon March 29, 2004 @11:31AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Open Source A new open source CFD flow solver has been started and is seeking interested developers and users. OpenFlower is a C++ open source Linux CFD code mainly intended to solve the turbulent incompressible Navier-Stokes equations with a LES approach. It can deal with arbitrary complex 3D geometries with its finite volume approach.

The code is mainly intended to be used for Large Eddy Simulations of turbulent flows. It was first designed for PhD students (and researchers) to enable exchange of knowledge about numerics and turbulence modeling, in a field (CFD) which is too often governed by commercial codes, which are unwilling to reveal what lies behind attracting flow images. The initial development team idea, was the one shared by the open source community : What if it could be applied to the fluid mechanics and turbulence research fields, in order to come up with a shared, reliable and efficient common CFD software ?
