For Ubuntu 16.04LTS, 18.04LTS, 19.04, 19.10, Windows 10 and Docker images for other Linux and macOS
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.
