Projects and Extensions
The following site shows valuable people, companies, andfascilities who are working on free OpenFOAM® extensions. Also some interesting websites are presented.
Hosted by ESI Group, invented by József Nagy and maintained by a group of community engaged people
The OpenFOAM® wiki page that is hosted by the ESI group was invented by József Nagy 2017 and collects the great work of a lot of OpenFOAM® enthusiasts and community contributors. The wiki offers different kind of tutorials about OpenFOAM® and does not be in concurrence with the first wiki page hosted by Bernhard Gscheider. This page is a must visit one for beginners and newcomers. Even experienced users will find very good information there.
Hosted by Bernhard Gschaider and maintained by the community
The OpenFOAMWiki hosted by Bernhard Gschaider contains a lot of information of different libraries, installation instructions and a lot more. Here one will find a lot of information about the beautiful world of OpenFOAM®. Please use this place if you want to share your contributions to the OpenFOAM® community.
Working at JKU in Linz
József Nagy is a professional and advanced OpenFOAM® users and shares his knowledge related to OpenFOAM® on his Youtube channel. He is discovering a wide range of different topics which are worth to check out - even if one is already an advanced OpenFOAM® user.
Working at the University of Singapore
Pablo Higuera is crazy about the sea. He has been studying waves, first empirically and afterwards theoretically almost all of his life (as he stated to me). He loves to swim in the sea while combining it with sailing and surfing. Thus, he learned to respect the sea and replicate its action in the Open Source Toolbox OpenFOAM®. The extensions are related to the field of wave generation and wave interaction with breakwaters. now included in the olaFlow CFD suite.
by Håkan Nilsson
The Dept of Thermo and Fluid Dynamics at the university of Chalmers provide every year a very interesting OpenFOAM® proceeding. Everybody should be aware of the great work they do here. During the course, the students prepare different topics and share a document, the case/libraries and slides.
Working as Software Developer at HDF Research
Bernhard is one famous OpenFOAM® enthusiast who is hacking the OpenFOAM® toolbox and manipulating it with his well known swak4Foam library. The extensions he build for OpenFOAM® are legendary as well as his presentations and the stories about Ignaz. The swak4Foam package offers a wide range of different extensions and applications which makes live easier and allows one to use very nice features.
Working at Holzmann CFD / MAN Energy Solutions
As one is already on Holzmann CFD's website, it should be obvious that the contributions are published on different platforms and on different topics. OpenFOAM®, Blender®, DAKOTA®, Salome and ParaView® are the open source softwares which are used in the field of numerical simulations. Tobias Holzmann shares his knowledge in this field on different topics via training case, teaching videos and PDF contributions.
Open The Way To Customizations
Fumiya Nozaki's CFD Blog discusses a wide range of different CFD topics which are related to OpenFOAM®. He is explaining different turbulence models with the correct equations and implementation into OpenFOAM®. A nice place to extend ones knowledge.
Synthetik applied technologies is working in different field mainly in the explosion analysis. During 2019, they published the »blastFoam« repository which is built for high explosive substrates. Thus, using the library one can investigate into explosion simulation. Furthermore, the »blastFoam« library includes a 2D adaptive mesh refinement library and other interesting features.
