The OpenFOAM® (Open Field Operation and Manipulation) CFD Toolbox is a
free, open source CFD software package which has a large user base
across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and
academic organisations. OpenFOAM has an extensive range of features to
solve anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions,
turbulence and heat transfer, to solid dynamics and electromagnetics. It
includes tools for meshing, notably snappyHexMesh, a parallelised mesher
for complex CAD geometries, and for pre- and post-processing. Almost
everything (including meshing, and pre- and post-processing) runs in
parallel as standard, enabling users to take full advantage of computer
hardware at their disposal.
