OpenFOAM is a widely used open-source software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). There is also a growing number of groups on our campus which use or at least give OpenFOAM a try. I never applied OpenFOAM for CFD simulations myself – I only spent lots of hours installing it on RRZE’s clusters. But from what I heard from actual users, documentation seems to be rather poor resulting in a slow learning curve. To facilitate and stimulate a coordinated communication and self-help of the different OpenFOAM users and groups at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, a local mailing list has been set up. OpenFOAM users from outside of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg are also welcome if they give a substantial contribution – but keep in mind that this local mailing list is not an official OpenFOAM support forum.
The subscription policy for the mailing list is “open”, i.e. everyone can directly subscribe/unsubscribe. Posts to the mailing list are only allowed from registered users (i.e. from the email address used for subscription) – all other messages require approval by the moderator to prevent spam.
