SimScale - OpenFOAM Version

Can a staff member provide this info? I can’t find it in the documentation.

Hi @hnassar!

The current OpenFOAM version we are using is Version: 2.3.1. For the sake of completeness, I should mention that we are using a newer version for SnappyHexMesh 16.06+. Hope that I could help!

All the best!

Hi thanks for replying.
Was it changed recently? or is this the only version ever used on SimScale?

Hi @hnassar!

Very old projects used an older version of OpenFOAM. We upgraded the version in the past and made sure that old projects were not affected.

Best,

Hi
Is the version has been updated now?

The current version is a modified OF version of 2.3.1.

All the best!

Is it possible to install that modified OF in a local computer?

Hello everyone @jousefm @vishnubabu_c1

Do you know If there is a way to reproduce a mesh done with Hex Paramétrica Dominant mesh generator here in SIMSCALE using the OF with the correct version? Or there is a lot of modification done from the source/base code in OF ?

Hope to ser some reply.
Regards!

@jousefm Kindly help me with an update on the current version of OpenFOAM that Simscale is using now? Is it still OpenFOAM Version 2.3.1?

Secondly, is it still SnappyHexMesh 16.06+ and wat reference link can I use for referencing as Simscale Documentation? Thank you. Stay safe! :sunglasses: :mask:

AFAIK this is still the case @donvic - asked about Snappy just in case :wink:

Please note that OF is not OF in our case because we do a lot of development internally which is not directly comparable to a specific OF version.

Update: Snappy version is SnappyHexMesh 16.06+ :+1:

Cheers,

Jousef
