This is a special interest group focuses on the use of OpenFoam for solving Marine, Offshore and Coaster Engineering and related problems.Created on: Thursday, 02 May 2013
This group aims to promote the use of OpenFoam for general CFD applications, e.g Aerospace, Automobile, Ventilation, Electronic cooling, hydrodynamics(free surface) etc.We also hope to organize a OpeFoam Workshop here in Singapore in 2014.Created on: Wednesday, 01 May 2013
This is a forum focusing on the use of OF for built environment. Topics for discussion are, but not limited to, HVAC, Green Building, Wind Driven Rain, Fire & Smoke, Pollutants Dispersion, Blast, acoustic, and OF GUI for Building Engineering Simulation.Created on: Wednesday, 01 May 2013
This is a special interest group created initially on the 7th OpenFOAM® Workshop in Darmstadt to discuss:- HPC Installation/Compilation/Configuration of OF in HPC environments - Scalability using OF and its tools on large systems - Availability of large test cases to verify such large system installations or other HPC related advances in OFCreated on: Monday, 02 July 2012
This group will focus in developing an All-Speed or Mach-uniform multiphase themofludic code using OpenFOAM® as its platform technology. Such development work has been ongoing for a couple of years but now with independence and special focus for Lean Premixed and Prevaporised (LPP) Gas Turbine combustion application.The code utilises a modified 8-equation Saurel-Abgrall (1999) multi-phase and multi-fluid model with a hybrid density-pressure based solver as in Xisto et al (2011).Improvements to attain more accurate EOS to capture some flow features such as flash evaporation of multicomponent fuels (JP8) is underway. A more challenging issue of predicting primary atomisation will be considered soon.Created on: Friday, 08 June 2012
OpenFOAM®® simulations take a significant amount of time leading to higher costs of simulations. GPU technology has a potential to reduce the time.There are a few solutions on the market such as ofgpu or SpeedIT. Which one do you prefer? What are their limitations?Do you think OpenFOAM®® community could benefit from GPU technology?Created on: Friday, 20 April 2012
The wind energy SIG is a place for collaborators to share about different topics in wind energy. These include atmospheric boundary layer flows, transition, and modelling wind turbines as well as other topics. Please see our website on the OpenFOAM® wiki for more information: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Sig_WindECreated on: Friday, 03 June 2011
This group is for anybody interested in simulating electrochemical systems such as batteries, fuel cells, capacitors etc. Hopefully we can share some tips on how to solve these highly nonlinear/coupled systems.Created on: Monday, 14 March 2011

I would love to re-launch the documentation project in order to organize and coordinate community-driven documentation on the OpenFOAM® CFD toolbox.This group is founded in order to collect ideas and suggestions. Please join the discussion!Created on: Thursday, 18 November 2010
Turbulence modeling and simulation is a subject which cuts across all application areas. This SIG provides a forum for addressing issues associated with modeling and simulation of turbulence using RANS, DES, LES, and DNS methods.Created on: Tuesday, 29 June 2010
Ship Hydro SIG covers all aspects of CFD simulation of ships and ship systems. As a group, it intersects with the Turbomachinery SIG, the Turbulence Modeling SIG, and the Multiphase and Free-Surface SIG.Created on: Monday, 28 June 2010
This group is covering general topics related to chemical reactions and thermodynamic applications. You can use it for general topics and to find people with common interests to found more specialized goups.Created on: Thursday, 24 June 2010
The OpenFOAM® Turbomachinery Working Group was initiated at the Second OpenFOAM® Workshop in Zagreb, June 2007.Responsibles: Maryse Page, Martin Beaudoin (Hydro-Québec) and Hakan Nilsson (Chalmers).The group has lots of contributions in the OpenFOAM® Wiki: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Sig_TurbomachineryCreated on: Sunday, 20 June 2010
