— TEGFoam, simple heat transfer investigation —
The following training case provided by Tobias Holzmann has some interesting background. The brief story is given in the »About« section. With the website re-launch and the complete freely available material, Tobias decided to add this case to the download section too. However, the case does not provide too much interesting insight but provides some interesting aspects. To investigate the case, one needs to compile the »TEGFoam« application. As different materials are used in the case without using the conjugate heat transfer solver, one has to handle the physics with a new solver. The main benefit is the usage of just one region while setting different material properties (diffusion coefficients) to the cells.

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.
