Mathematics, Numerics, Derivations and OpenFOAM® v7 (Printed)Special price
The well-known book of Tobias Holzmann as printed B5 soft-cover version. For all those who prefer to read books rather than PDF's on screens. The printed book version also includes the PDF version. Discount possible, if you already bought the PDF. Furthermore, once you have access to the PDF, you will also get the latest updates.
Laser Convection Condition
During the Ph.D. of Tobias Holzmann, the »LaserConvectionBC« boundary condition was developed that handles moving heat sources (Gaussian profile) while taking care of the energy balance (convective part). The boundary condition is available in the »Software« section.
Mathematics, Numerics, Derivations and OpenFOAM® v7
The well-known book by Holzmann CFD. This version of the book, reviewed and rewritten for OpenFOAM® version 7, is available for some fee. It contains the same content compared to the free version but does have all pages visible. Once you paid, you will have access to all further updates. The next updates will contain more stuff related to the OpenFOAM toolbox.
Master Thesis (Flamelet-Model and biomass combustion)
Biomass combustion chamber analysis and optimization using the toolbox OpenFOAM® and the flamelet model built and published by the CRECK modeling group (Chemical Reaction Engineering and Chemical Kinetics Group, Milano, Italy). The thesis was written at the company BOSCH GmbH.
Mathematics, Numerics, Derivations and OpenFOAM® v7 (Limited)
The well-known book by Holzmann CFD. This version of the book, reviewed and rewritten for OpenFOAM® version 7, is available for free in the Limited Edition. The book enjoys world-wide acceptance and was released in November 2019. This edition will be updated and maintained. However, compared to the paid version, one does not have access to the whole content.
Community Christmas Competition 2019
The third OpenFOAM community challenge invented by József Nagy. The following document contains a summary of the modeling and investigations by Holzmann CFD. We all look forward to the next challenge that might be invented by József Nagy in the year 2020. Be part of the community and take part in the new challenges.
Mathematics, Numerics, Derivations and OpenFOAM® v2.3
The well-known book by Holzmann CFD. This version of the book, fourth edition of February 2017, will be free. More than 35.000 reads/downloads on the former Holzmann CFD website and ResearchGate. The book enjoys world-wide acceptance and was written and released from the years 2014 to 2018. This free edition will not be updated and maintained.
The Steady-State Laminar Flamelet Model
Dr. mont. Tobias Holzmann investigated biomass combustion chambers during his master thesis. For that purpose, the steady-state laminar flamelet model, invented by Peters et al., was used to model the combustion inside the chambers. The model was built by the CRECK modeling group (Milano, Italy). The source code is still kept up-to-date by Holzmann CFD for the latest OpenFOAM® version.
During 2016 and 2017, Tobias Holzmann attended the class of Prof. Dr. Clements Brand at the Montanuniversität Leoben. During the discourse, different topics in the field of numerical mathematics were investigated. Tobias Holzmann published a summary of the lecture given by Prof. Dr. Clements Brand after the class, which is presented here. The document further contains additional work such as a matrix construction, the Gray Scott model analysis, and other numerical topics. The document is written in German.
Community Christmas Competition 2017
The first OpenFOAM community challenge invented by Jószef Nagy. The following document contains a summary of the modeling and investigations by Holzmann CFD. We all look forward to the next challenge that might be invented by József Nagy. Be part of the community and take part in the new challenges.
The Ph.D. thesis of Tobias Holzmann can be split into three different topics. i) thermal stress analysis using OpenFOAM®, ii) solid kinetic in aluminum alloys using MatCalc, iii) optimization algorithms using DAKOTA®. The thesis investigates into local heat treatment of aluminum alloys. Furthermore, the thesis includes a fundamental analysis of the relaxation methods in OpenFOAM®. The investigation into the relaxation is primarily related to the solid mechanic's calculation. The thesis is written in German.
OpenFOAM® offers the usage of interpolation classes that handle the information transformation from, e.g., face centers to face corner points. This method is used for free boundary conditions where the fluxes should be conserved concerning the mesh motion — keyword: shrinkage model for solidifying metals.
