Since 2017, József Nagy arranges each year the OpenFOAM® community Christmas competition. In 2017 the topic was to investigate into the drag coefficient of the Suzanne's head from Blender®1. Tobias took part the first time, and the case he studied is freely available for the community. A more detailed description of the case is given in the »Publication« section. Here, Tobias provides a PDF file that explains the case and its set-up.
— Please participate in the next year. Its fun —
The following case shows the investigated case of Tobias Holzmann for the community Christmas competition 2017. The scenario shows the mesh generation, the used numerics and solvers settings as well as the convergence set-up, An object function was used to evaluate the drag coefficient of Suzanne's head. All information are given in the aforementioned PDF.

gThe available training cases are tested and built for different OpenFOAM® versions. During the tests, only the OpenFOAM Foundation version of OpenFOAM® was used. Furthermore, the following software packages are required for most of the training cases: Salome®, ParaView®, and for optimization tasks one also needs DAKOTA®. The cases might work with the ESI version of OpenFOAM® too (not tested). Additionally, there is no support for Windows-based OpenFOAM® versions.
