Introduction to OpenFOAM

This pdf gives you an extensive introduction into the simulation workflow of OpenFOAM. You will learn the basics required for a successful simulation. You will cover the following topics:

  • general introduction
  • solvers
  • versions
  • code structure
  • case structure
  • summery of numerical entries
  • simple 1D problem
    • physics
    • numerics
    • approximations
    • meshing with blockMesh
    • boundary conditions
    • compiling the code
    • running the case
    • post processing

If you want to compile the solver and run the case, download the files here:
