2 Step-by-Step Instruction

  • Navigate to the tutorial directory (should be something like "OpenFOAM/username-2.1.1/run/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/elbow").
  • Convert fluent mesh to foam mesh by running "fluentMeshToFoam elbow.msh". This writes the mesh into the constant/PolyMesh directory.
  • Run the case by issuing "icoFoam". If you have pyFoam installed, you can use "pyFoamPlotRunner.py icoFoam" The pyFoamPlotRunner creates some residual plots and saves a log file.
  • Post-process by typic "paraFoam" at the command prompt.
