OpenFOAM is a toolbox for customized numerical solvers. It contains processing utilities for the solution of continuum mechanics problems, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD). This version is based on the OpenFOAM Foundation edition.
Running your OpenFOAM workload on Nerdalize
Make sure you’ve set up Nerd, our CLI.
Set up your dataset.
Download the pitzDaily example dataset and unzip it.
Alternatively you can use your own dataset, for which this README explains the required dataset structure.
Upload your dataset.
$ nerd dataset upload --name=openfoam-input path-to-data-folder
