Introductory materials about OpenFOAM


OpenFOAM is a CFD toolbox written in C++ and Linux. I need to work with this for my maters thesis. Does anyone have any familiarity with it to guide me how to start learning.

Thank you.

Please read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. Asking us to look things up for you is fairly rude; we can 'guide you' to their website, where you can find a tutorial. Start learning there. Did you even TRY to look anything up related to this?

Sorry,
But I already printed a hard copy of that tutorial that you mentioned and read it several times. And still its hard for me to get started. So I asked the comunity if someone that have prior expereince with that toolbox may can help me. Yes I have looked everything in that site.

Someone here having experience with it, won't do much to help YOU understand it. And you didn't say what (if anything) you had looked at or researched before you asked that question, so there's no way we can know what you did.

If you're having problems understanding the tutorial, then contact your teacher, re-read the tutorial, or contact the openfoam developers and ask them. We can't help you with anything unless you post a SPECIFIC question. We can try to help if you do, but we can't (somehow) make you understand documentation when you don't now, nor can we give you classes on it.

Ubuntu is always the best. And also Ubuntu users. Please see my similar thread in ubuntuforums.org and the warm responses compared to this forum.

So you got directed to the same page/forum that we sent you to, but it's better somehow?? Again, if you have a SPECIFIC question, we can help, but this isn't (nor is the Ubuntu forums), the place to come to get an openfoam programming tutorial. And in that other forum, you also didn't provide any useful information, tell people what you had done/tried so far, etc.

If you want help, ask questions. If you don't understand the documentation, talk to your teacher.

Hi.

Could try searching "OpenFOAM" but for videos, it shows "About 20,900 results (0.35 seconds)" with google... I'd use a video downloader and then speed them up in VLC.

Side note; if you were doing something extremely dangerous (obviously not posting this or necessarily using Linux and the interweb) but didn't know it would you want someone to be nice or blunt, either way you may need what they say?

Best wishes and have fun!
