I've been learning CFD theory for 4 months (which includes FEA, FDM AND FVM) and now I want to start running simulations. As a novice to CFD software, I would appreciate some advice on where to start, e.g., OpenFoam, Matlab, Fortran? (I am comfortable with programming and learning coding languages).

  • $\begingroup$ This is a very general and objective question. I would recommend writing a simple one or two dimensional FVM code in Matlab for a classic CFD problem and once you're comfortable, move onto OpenFoam. Go through some of the examples in OpenFoam and then again, try to solve a classic CFD problem. $\endgroup$ – namu Mar 30 '16 at 19:33
