Wolf Dynamics - Multiphysics simulations, optimization, and data analytics

Advanced solid modeling for General CFD




In this advanced training, we address solid modeling for general CFD, everything done using open source technology

During this course, we made efficient use of the solid modeling applications SALOME and Onshape, and we show how to use these applications to generate clean geometries to be used with any CFD solver (including OpenFOAM®) or any other mesher.

Topics to be covered:

Introduction to SALOME environment

Introduction to Onshape environment

Advanced solid modeling using SALOME

Scripting in SALOME

Geometry cleaning using SALOME

Advanced solid modeling using Onshape

Importing and exporting CAD formats in Onshape

Direct manipulation of imported geometries

Agile product design using Onshape

Parts drawings in Onshape
