OpenFOAM 7 Released

The OpenFOAM Foundation is pleased to announce the release of version 7 of the OpenFOAM open source CFD toolbox. Version 7 is a snapshot of the OpenFOAM development version which, through sustainable development, is always-releasable. It provides new functionality and major improvements to existing code, with strict demands on usability, robustness and extensibility. OpenFOAM 7 includes the following key developments:

  • Heat transfer: consolidated solvers and improved convergence and robustness.
  • Particle tracking: improved robustness and optimized computation.
  • Multiphase: wave damping, configurable inlet phase properties, better settling numerics.
  • Reacting multiphase models: heat transfer, population balance, breakup, coalescence, etc.
  • Reactions/combustion: simplified case setup.
  • Turbulence: improved consistency and stability of wall functions, added sources.
  • Thermophysical: thermodynamic functions, temperature-strain-dependent viscosity.
  • Other models: atmospheric, rigid body dynamics, boundary conditions, sources.
  • Mesh: standardized dynamic mesh capability, improved motion solvers.
  • Case Configuration: improved data visualization, setup tools, function objects.
  • Computation: improvements to containers, fields, parallel running, etc.
