OpenFOAM® frienfly software


OpenFOAM® is the leading free, open source software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and distributed under the General Public Licence (GPL). However, OpenFOAM® is just a piece of puzzle in a whole engineering process chain. To make such a workflow as smooth as possible - we have created a list of pieces of free (mostly open-source) software, which go very well together with OpenFOAM®.
