foam-extend-3.1 "Zagreb" is released The Extend Project is proud to announce the next release of the community fork of OpenFOAM®: foam-extend-3.1 [link]!
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
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
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
Use of OpenFOAM® in the Aeronautical, Aerospace, Energy, Oil & Gas Industries in Brazil.Created on: Monday, 28 June 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
All about using IDEs for OpenFOAM® development and debugging in a faster and more comfortable wayCreated on: Friday, 09 July 2010
The founding of this group was discussed and decided on the OpenFOAM® Stammtisch Germany 'Mitte' on September 24th, 2010, in the 'hybrid RANS/LES' bof session.The aim of this working group is to get users and developers interested in Detached-Eddy Simulation (DES) together and achieve a correct DES implementation in OpenFOAM® and a common understanding of the method.Furthermore, the already established contacts, working groups and results required a common platform to be able to focus on our goals.Finally, testcases, best-practice guidelines and an improved documentation are needed.Created on: Friday, 24 September 2010
The working group focuses on the development of a robust and versatile multiphase solve based on the Euler-Euler multi-fluid approach.Current applications of interest are the simulation of bubble columns and dense gas-particle flows, with granular phases described by means of the kinetic theory approach and frictional models.Starting point of the development is the existing twoPhaseEulerFoam solver, which will be modified to improve its robustness and then generalized to deal with an arbitrary number of dispersed phases. Further development will include the addition of quadrature-based methods to deal with particle/bubble size distribution.Created on: Wednesday, 29 September 2010
The LTFD research group is situated at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (COPPE/UFRJ), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The group interest is on CFD code development using OpenFOAM® core. The development of codes follow the main LTFD research areas: Multiphase Flow, Population Balance & CFD, Viscoelastic Fluid Flow, High Performance Computing.Created on: Sunday, 10 October 2010
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
This group deals with the implementation of quadrature-based moment methods for the solution of kinetic equations, with the purpose of describing gas-solid and gas-liquid flows (risers, bubble columns, ...).Created on: Sunday, 12 December 2010

At the Stammtisch United at Dortmund 2011, we noticed, that it is not clear, if the current version has an adequate "automatic" wall function, or if there are better solutions. Within this group we want to test wall functions and exchange suitable test cases.Created on: Friday, 25 February 2011
Diese Gruppe soll den Beschlüssen vom OpenFOAM®-Stammtisch United (Kick-Off) am 23./24.2.2011 an der TU Dortmund zur Zukunft des OpenFOAM®-Stammtisch United Rechnung tragen.Der kick-off des OpenFOAM®-Stammtisch 'united' war ein erfreulicher Erfolg und es gab einige Beschlüsse zum weiteren Verlauf des OpenFOAM®-Stammtisch 'united':In der Diskussionsrunde 'Stammtisch United - Zukunft des gemeinsamen Stammtisch / Organisation?' hat sich ein positive Stimmungsbild ergeben. Es ist beschlossen worden, einen Stammtisch United im nächsten Jahr wieder stattfinden zu lassen.Eine Anbindung an ProcessNet wird weiterhin favorisiert und kann bei besserer 'Vermarktung' des Stammtisches zu einer größeren Teilnehmerzahl führen.Ein Turnus von 1x/Jahr für den Stammtisch United wurde von allen befürwortet.Form und Art der Veranstaltung wird beibehalten wie bei allen Stammtischen.In dieser Gruppe soll alles rund um diesen jährlichen Stammtisch diskutiert werden.Created on: Wednesday, 09 March 2011
