News Following the recent announcement at the 7th OpenFOAM® Workshop in Darmstadt, Germany, Engys is proud to announce the Beta release of Helyx-OS v1.0.0, a free-to-use GUI designed to work with the latest OpenFOAM® release.

The GUI is developed using Java+VTK and delivered to the public under the GNU General Public License.

"An Open Source GUI to complement the widely used Open Source CFD suite is the last missing piece in the puzzle", says Dr. Eugene de Villiers, General Manager of Engys Ltd.

The main features of Helyx-OS at present are:

  • Create and run new CFD cases from scratch in serial or parallel.
  • Native support for OPENFOAM® dictionary files (load existing cases by reading settings directly from the available project text files).
  • Control of meshing utility snappyHexMesh, including geometry display and execution within the GUI.
  • Comprehensive case definition module, including controls for physical models, turbulence, boundary conditions, field initialisation and solver execution within the GUI.

None of the OpenFOAM® related products and services offered by Engys are approved or endorsed by SGI Corp., owner of the OpenFOAM® trademark.
