For Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, 20.04 LTS, 22.04 LTS, Windows 10 and Docker images for other Linux and macOS
The OpenFOAM Foundation is pleased to announce the release of version 10 of the OpenFOAM open source CFD toolbox. Version 10 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 10 includes the following key developments:
- Multiphase: added models and improved performance / robustness of multiphase solvers.
- Transport: properties consolidated into a single physicalProperties file.
- Thermophysical: improved handling of conductivity and added documentation.
- Heat transfer: improved thermal coupling in conjugate heat transfer.
- Particle tracking: can now be plugged into any solver using the clouds fvModel.
- Reactions: chemistry now solve for mass fractions to account for thermal expansion.
- Parallelisation: new framework for load-balancing, decomposition and redistribution.
- Mesh: general improvements to snappyHexMesh, blockMesh and other tools
- Dynamic Mesh: non-conformal coupling (NCC) for rotating geometry, to replace AMI.
- Dynamic Re-meshing: mesh-to-mesh mapping for mesh motion including engines.
- Function Objects: more efficient output for sampling, and new field calculations.
- Models and Constraints: now work for moving mesh cases and with function objects.
- Boundary Conditions: new general conditions of pressure, velocity and temperature.
- Case Configuration: created userTime to provide a customised measure of time.
- Computation: improvements to distance-to-wall calculations, time handling and I/O.
