OpenFOAM® projects

OpenFOAM® projects in CFD support in general

The most common projects in CFD support company are typically those projects, where the customer wants to replace his/her current methodology based on some commercial software with OpenFOAM® methodology. Such a methodology conversion to OpenFOAM® is motivated by cost savings. Client can then decide where to spent the extra money saved on cheaper and more efficient CFD technology.

Another big group of our CFD projects is investigating some complicated physical phenomena and propose the proper solution to the customer. We call it CFD study.

Nowadays, very popular are those CFD projects which are aimed on automation of workflow connected with CFD. The CFD Process Automation is probably the biggest CFD challenge of the future leading to huge increase of productivity. The benefits are time and cost savings and elimination of human factor. The whole CFD process is automated (from preprocessing to CFD simulation and results in required data format). The new tools and methods are integrated into client's existing PLM environments.

The last but not least group of projects is tailor-made OpenFOAM® customization. Our client simply chooses what functionality is required and we prepare it exactly according to his/her requirements.
