First simulation in OpenFOAM

In these videos

velocity magnitude of the elbow case at t=75s

you will learn about

  • the basic case setup of OpenFOAM
  • the initial values of your simulation
  • the mesh (e.g. the boundaries)
  • running the simulation of the flow in a 2D elbow case with three different meshes
  • post processing

You will familiarize yourself with the terminal in Linux, where you will run all your simulations in OpenFOAM. You will also get a first idea on the work flow that you have to follow in order to run a successful simulation.
