Release Notes: This release adds minor enhancements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release adds a completely new, fully-parallelized implementation of the arbitrary mesh interface, a new solver for two compressible fluid phases where one phase is dispersed, a new Euler-Euler solver which can simulate any number of incompressible phases which may be dispersed or "VoF"-resolved, an incompressible Navier-Stokes solver which approximates waves through a wave height field, and a turbulence model which can simulate flow with a boundary layer which undergoes a transition from laminar to turbulent flow.
Release Notes: Numerous enhancements were made. Support for newer GCC compilers was fixed.
Release Notes: Numerous new applications were added for multiphase flow and cavitation, buoyancy-flow and heat transfer, high speed flows, and molecular dynamics. A new meshing utility was added, which generates split-hex meshes from surface geometry and provides insertion of cell layers, flexible mesh refinement, and robust surface handling. Several new additions were made to model libraries, including radiation modelling, rotating frame of reference, Lagrangian particle tracking, molecular dynamics, and a mesh motion solver for flexible mesh scaling.
Release Notes: The program now uses OpenMPI by default. Converters support translation from Fluent format to OpenFOAM, and from OpenFOAM into a generic user-specified format. New solvers have been added for incompressible Newtonian fluids, with either turbulent or laminar flows, and new turbulence models for compressible flows. Mesh motion solvers have been extended to include displacement as well as velocity. A scheme was added to remove high frequency modes with ‘staggering’ characteristics. Parallel compilation has improved. The program shows a speedup on the Itanium2 processor, and support for asymmetric matrices was improved.
Release Notes: Significant improvements were made to robustness and efficiency in handling multiphase flows. A new solver was added for compressible two-phase flow including cavitation. Support for models and multiple reference frames were added to the pressure-velocity solvers. Support for new turbulence models was added. New generalized linear solvers were added, including geometric-algebraic multi-grid (GAMG) and runtime selectable preconditioning.
Release Notes: The AMG solver is faster. Parallel communications were improved. OpenMPI support has been added. Speedups were made in templates, mesh structures, and temporary fields. The modularity of discretization techniques and mesh topology modification methods was improved. The sphericalTensor type was added. Physical constants are now loaded as data. Resolution of expansion waves, contacts, and shocks was improved. Various experimental foam solvers have been added. Handling of boundaries and gradients was improved. Assorted utilities for mesh manipulation and post-processing were added.
Release Notes: GCC 4.0.x support added. C++ code cleanups were made for reusability, conformance to C++ standards, and simplicity. The solvers were improved for greater accuracy, and parallelization was improved.
