The OpenFOAM Foundation needs €250k annually to maintain OpenFOAM including “usability” developments, code redesign, issue resolution (bug fixing), distribution and testing, and operational costs. We provide 3 maintenance plans to fund the maintenance of OpenFOAM: Bronze at €1k per year; Silver at €5k; and Gold at €20k. Priority is given to maintenance requests from users backed by a maintenance plan, where: Bronze gives priority over published information; Silver gives additional priority over quality assurance, e.g. fixes on the Issue Tracking System; and, Gold gives additional priority over requests for usability improvements and code redesign.
When an OpenFOAM simulation runs in parallel, the data for decomposed fields and mesh(es) has historically been stored in multiple files within separate directories for each processor. Processor directories are named processorN, where N is the processor number. In July 2017, the new collated file format was introduced to OpenFOAM-dev […]
The development line of OpenFOAM is now packaged for Ubuntu 17.04, codename zesty. The deb pack, openfoam-dev, is distributed from the OpenFOAM Foundation download repository and includes the latest features and bug fixes for OpenFOAM.
OpenFOAM is now packaged for Ubuntu 17.04, codename zesty. The deb pack, openfoam4, is distributed from the OpenFOAM Foundation download repository and includes the latest bug fixes released with OpenFOAM version 4.1.
The OpenFOAM Foundation reached its funding target of €100k for maintenance 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.
OpenFOAM is now packaged for Ubuntu 16.10, codename yakkety. The deb pack, openfoam4, is distributed from the OpenFOAM Foundation download repository and includes the latest bug fixes released with OpenFOAM version 4.1.
The packaged build of OpenFOAM-dev for Ubuntu 14.04LTS and 16.04LTS now includes object libraries for Scotch 6 to support mesh redistribution when running snappyHexMesh in parallel.
The OpenFOAM Foundation, which licenses and distributes OpenFOAM free and open source to the the public, is pleased to announce the upgrade of its website at https://openfoam.org.
