1.1 Accessing and basic usage

The OpenFOAM® (Open Field Operation and Manipulation) CFD Toolbox is a free, open source CFD software package with an extensive range of features to solve anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence and heat transfer, to solid dynamics and electromagnetics.

In order to check what OpenFOAM versions are installed on the system, run the following command:

$ module avail cae/openfoam

Typically, several OpenFOAM versions might be available.

Any available version can be accessed by loading the appropriate module:

$ module load cae/openfoam/<version>

with <version> specifying the desired version.

In order to activate the OpenFOAM applications, after the module is loaded run the following:

$ source $FOAM_INIT

or simply:

$ foamInit
