Go back to Day 15.

Boussinesq approximation and Casson model

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
  • fvMesh
  • GeometricField
  • IOobject and objectRegistry
  • Higher-level programming
  • fvc::, fvm:: operators
  • compilation
  • Boussinesq approximation
  • Casson model

You can download the case files here.
