Visual-Environment for OpenFOAM: An Open Source-Based Enterprise CFD Solution
Fluid is everywhere and affects almost every industry. But what happens when the design of an industrial product is suboptimal? The answer is several detrimental things like lower energy efficiency, acoustic problems, and overheating – just to name a few. Eventually, these issues impact perceived quality and can even lead to warranty problems and recalls. Manufacturers rely on physical testing to help reduce these problems but higher cost, human effort, and limited availability of testing facilities are major concerns.
- Catered to OpenFOAM users, offers a feature-rich interface in an easy-to-use environment

Prescribed motion or 6DOF modelling
Geometry preparation is always challenging and probably the most time-consuming part of CFD analysis. Optimize your geometry preparation by taking advantage of inbuild geometry cleanup features like automatic crack fixing, unique leak closure approach, wrapping, surface meshing, along with traditional geometry cleanup options. Also, import the most common format of CAD data as input geometry. An additional geometry manipulation CAD package is not needed as Visual-Environment for OpenFOAM provides a complete solution.
学习和使用OpenFOAM,是否设置了我shing and solution tasks for industrial applications, becomes a smooth process with Visual-Environment for OpenFOAM. A complete environment is available to define volume mesh parameters (local refinement sizes, boundary layer, multi-region cases), setting up cases (physics, boundary conditions), and monitoring the solution. User efforts are drastically reduced, maximizing efficiency and avoiding mistakes in an intuitive step-by-step process. It supports a variety of physics such as cold flow and heat transfer, radiation, multiphase, DPM, scalars, reacting flows, etc. It can also prepare cases with your own functionality.
Consistency, repeatability, and accuracy become critical when certain types of simulations are done frequently, or multiple users are performing similar simulations. This can be achieved by preparing automated processes in Visual-Environment for OpenFOAM: a complete solution from CAD to results, that can be deployed on your preferred platform (desktop/laptop, HPC, cloud), on your own or with the support of ESI Group.
