Here, I’ll cover the basic workflow that I implement when I am using cfMesh. First, when do I use cfMesh? I love cfMesh. I find it robust, easy to use … Continue Reading A cfMesh workflow to speed up and improve your meshing

When working on practical engineering applications, you often encounter problems where there are significant changes in temperature locally in the flow field. For instance, if you are doing a heat … Continue Reading Sutherland’s Law

kω-SST (komegaSST) Boundary Conditions Here the basic boundary conditions if you are using the kOmegaSST model in OpenFOAM: At the wall: ω (omega) – specific dissipation rate BC type: fixedValue BC … Continue Reading BASIC kOmega-SST Boundary Conditions

This post is a simple demonstration of the timeVaryingFixedUniformValue boundary condition. This boundary condition allows a Dirichlet-type boundary condition to be varied in time. To demonstrate, we will modify the … Continue Reading Time-Varying Cylinder Motion in Cross-flow: timeVaryingFixedUniformValue

An excellent test case, and case to familiarize yourself with some of the turbulence models available in OpenFOAM is a 2D flat plate with zero pressure gradient. I will solve … Continue Reading Turbulent Zero Pressure Gradient Flat Plate – simpleFOAM, komegaSST

In this post I will go over the set up and solution of a pressure driven nozzle flow with a shock located in the diverging section. This refers to the … Continue Reading Pressure Driven Nozzle Flow with Shock – rhoCentralFoam

In this post I will simulate inviscid Mach 1.5 flow over a 23 degree wedge of a finite height.
