Funding OpenFOAM in 2019

The cost of sustaining OpenFOAM is currently € 250k per year. Organisations with commercial dependence on OpenFOAM should contribute to the cost of sustaining it. The OpenFOAM Foundation provides Maintenance Plans for organisations to support sustainability. There are three levels of Plan: Gold (€ 20k per year); Silver (€ 5k); and, Bronze (€ 1k). The funding supports a full-time team of core developers with combined skills in software design, programming, numerics, science and engineering, mainly at CFD Direct (including OpenFOAM’s creator, Henry Weller).

OpenFOAM 6 Released

The OpenFOAM Foundation is pleased to announce the release of version 6 of the OpenFOAM open source CFD toolbox. Version 6 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 6 includes the following key developments:

  • Conjugate heat transfer (CHT): improved usability, with simplified set up and running.
  • Rotating/sliding geometries: more robust AMI, and support for periodic cases.
  • Particle tracking: optimised computation and improved robustness.
  • Reacting multiphase models: phase change, reactions, drag, breakup, coalescence, etc.
  • Reactions/combustion: faster, full algebraic Jacobian, significant code redesign.
  • Other models: water waves and films, turbulence, thermophysics, atmospheric flows.
  • General: new case setup tools, boundary conditions, function objects, etc.
