Go back to Day 15.
This pdf gives you an introduction to programming in OpenFOAM. You will implement a solver for the modelling of a buoyancy-driven flow. In a second step you will implement the Casson model, which describes the flow of molten chocolate. You will learn about:
- header files
- base types
- IOobject and objectRegistry
- Higher-level programming
- fvc::, fvm:: operators
- Boussinesq approximation
- Casson model
You can download the case files here.
