TEG Module

— 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.

Over the last ten years, Tobias tried to publish a wide range of different materials related to OpenFOAM® and CFD. You know it much better than he does if the content is worth to be supported. If you want to thank Tobias for the work he did, feel free to tell the community your opinion about the work Tobias Holzmann is doing or you can email your thoughts directly to »This email address is being protected from spambots.

Keep in mind that the work that was done here took much time, and it is not self-evident that Tobias Holzmann shares all his work, knowledge, and attitude for free and keep the data up to date. Hosting the material, updating the data, and keeping up interesting work for the community does take much time and also money. Supporting Tobias can be done by donating any amount you would like to give or help him with his projects.

The 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.
