I am a linux user and here some first impressions of my first installation and simulation-run.
I installed openfoam 4.0 from "https://openfoam.org/download/4-1-ubuntu/
" and upgraded to 4.1 as described.
After that I added gnuplot from the repo with
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install gnuplot python-gnuplot
After that I had some problems with your preferences-dialog for your workbench in FC.
I would like to have the possibility to manually set file paths. This enables e.g. the use of an installed version of gmsh and in parallel the use of a downloaded version. The standard gmsh verion in the repo is to old and the official from gmsh.info comes as .tgz and can be run after unzipping.
I do not know if the prerequirements-checker is working on Linux. Should it work or is it only for WIN?
The installation of cfMesh from the FC-Preferences page results in "
Code: Select all
Error downloading cfMesh: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/username/OpenFOAM/username-4.1/cfMesh-v1.1.2.tar.gz'
I tried the elbow example from https://github.com/opensimsa/opensim/tr ... /CFD/Elbow
and it did work with gmesh and without cfMesh. The only setting I had to change was the max. mesh size was set to 0.0 otherwise I got "Error : Self intersecting surface mesh, computing intersections (this could take a while)".
Do you plan to give some parts of your work back to FEM-wb? I like your 'advanced' dialog for selecting boundary conditions and would love to see it in FEM-wb!!!
Looking forward to see more if this.
