OpenFOAM™ (Open Field Operation And Manipulation) is a collection of C++ libraries devoted to the numerical simulation of physical phenomena regarding the continuum mechanics. Among its main applications, we cite: reactive fluidynamics of complex flows, turbulent flows with heat transfer, conjugate computations, solid mechanics. The code is provided with a lot of pre-configured solvers and utilities which can be used as any other commercial tool for the numerical simulation. But in addition with respect to commercial softwares, OpenFOAM™ is open and free: the code is completely open and can be modified without any restriction only depending on user demands.
With over 10 years of experience in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), we are your professional partner to support your company in the field of CFD simulations. We provide advice and support at 360° degrees for the creation of new working practices in your company based on the open-source platform called OpenFOAM. From the selection of the most suitable methods for each single case to the development of the proper software for you, to the integration with your existing procedures and the training for your professionals, to the continued and on-site support.
We offer joint feasibility studies for the transition towards customized OpenFOAM solutions starting from multi-objective exsisting commercial softwares:
- Analysis of the current CFD workflow
- New process OpenFOAM definition
- Programming of OpenFOAM to provide the same performance of the commercial CFD software currently in use
- Results benchmarking
- Customizing OpenFOAM according to your needs
- Development of new functionality in OpenFOAM, implementation of the new process OpenFOAM in your company and integration with existing procedures
CFD Engineering combines leading-edge technology with over 15 years experience to deliver innovative, cost effective solutions for your business by exploiting OpenFOAM platform.
The services provided by CFD Engineering are divided into four main categories:
CFD Engineering has developed a very strong experience in both industry and academic applications, for constant innovation and rapidity on all phases of design process.
The fastest way of achieving proficiency in numerical modeling and use of OpenFOAM is a customized training program. Customers benefit from tutoring and advice on software tools and their suitability for specific applications. Training topics range from basic introductions through to advanced courses for more experienced clients.
In several cases, the choice of using an open source CFD platform is driven by the need of developing in-house expertise, either for improved accuracy or for confidentiality reasons. Custom modeling and fast turn-over are best achieved by combining the understanding of available tools and the problem under consideration. We offer custom-made support packages that take into account the size and nature of your business.
Software Development Services
Challenges in approaching, customizing and utilizing OpenFOAM to its true capabilities are considerable for a novice user. CFD Engineering provides pre-packaged solutions for specific requirements of OpenFOAM users, including: customized library extensions and additional functionality and new solvers.
