Funding OpenFOAM in 2017

OpenFOAM Funding 2017

The OpenFOAM Foundation needs €100k to fund its activities in 2017. We aim to improve software quality, targeting a 50% reduction in unresolved OpenFOAM issues. In particular, we want to repair the following areas of OpenFOAM, which requires significant code refactoring and/or rewriting: AMI, ACMI and cyclic interfaces; heat transfer, including CHT; particles and tracking (Lagrangian); sources and constraints (fvOptions). We propose that 20 companies pool €5k each reach our target. Please contact us about funding OpenFOAM in 2017.
