-
-* Overview
- OpenFOAM-1.7.x is the latest release of OpenFOAM that contains new features
- both from OpenCFD's development version of OpenFOAM and the repository 1.6.x
- distribution. This release passes our standard tests and the tutorials have
- been broadly checked. Please report any bugs by following the link:
- http://www.openfoam.com/bugs.
-
-* GNU/Linux version
- This release of OpenFOAM is distributed primarily in 2 ways: (1) as a Debian
- pack containing binaries and source; (2) from the SourceForge source code
- repository (see [[./README][README]]).
-
- The Ubuntu/Debian pack is available for 32 and 64 bit versions of the 10.04
- LTS operating system using the system compiler and libraries that will be
- installed automatically from standard Debian packs.
-
- To use the source version from the SourceForge repository, we provide a source
- pack of third-party packages that can be compiled on the user's system. This
- does not include =gcc=, since the system installed version is typically
- sufficient, but includes =paraview-3.8.0=, =openmpi-1.4.1=, =scotch_5.1=,
- =metis-5.0pre2=, =ParMetis-3.1= and =ParMGridGen-1.0=.
-
-* Library developments
- There have been a number of developments to the libraries to support the
- extension of functionality in solver and utility applications.
-*** Core library
- + Large number of code refinements and consistency improvements to support
- other developments.
-*** Turbulence modelling
- + Wall function boundary conditions:
- + *New* =mutWallFunction= continuous wall function,
- + *New* =mutLowReWallFunction= continuous wall function,
- + *New* =nutWallFunction= continuous wall function,
- + *New* =nutLowReWallFunction= continuous wall function,
- + Standard wall functions, based on k, now renamed =nutkWallFunction= and
- =mutkWallFunction=
- + =omegaWallFunction= now includes laminar blending function.
- + Conjugate heat transfer boundary conditions:
- + *New* =turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMixed= BC,
- + *New* =turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffle= BC.
-*** Thermo-physical Models
- There has been a set of developments to redefine the thermodynamics in some
- solvers in terms of sensible enthalpy instead of total (i.e. including
- chemical) enthalpy. This was done to improve the handling of
- thermodynamics in the case of partially-premixed or non-premixed combustion
- systems, or to handle systems with non-unity Lewis number.
- + *New* =hsPsiThermo= thermophysical model calculation based on sensible
- enthalpy =hs= and compressibility =psi=.
- + *New* =hsRhoThermo= thermophysical model calculation based on =hs= and
- density =rho=.
- + *New* =hsCombustionThermo= thermophysical model calculation for a
- combustion mixture based on =hs= and =psi=.
- + *New* =hsPsiMixtureThermo= thermophysical model calculation for a
- mixture based on =hs= and =psi=.
- + *New* =hsReactionThermo= thermophysical model calculation for a complex
- reacting mixture based on =hs=.
-*** DSMC
- + 1D and 2D planar simulations now possible by specifying empty patches in
- the usual way.
- + *New* =MixedDiffuseSpecular= wall boundary condition added.
- + *New* pressure field measurement.
- + *New* measurement of velocity slip and temperature jump.
-*** Dynamic Mesh
- + *New* =sixDoFRigidBodyDisplacement= six degree-of-freedom, fluid coupled
- rigid body motion, applied as a boundary condition to a patch in the
- pointDisplacement field for dynamic mesh cases. The motion may have any
- number of restraints (springs and dampers) and constraints (reductions in
- degrees-of-freedom) applied. Restraints include
- =linearAxialAngularSpring=, =linearSpring=, =sphericalAngularSpring= and
- =tabulatedAxialAngularSpring=.
- Constraints include =fixedAxis=, =fixedLine=, =fixedOrientation=,
- =fixedPlane= and =fixedPoint=.
-*** Numerics
- + MULES now supports sub-cycling on moving meshes for interface capturing
- VoF (volume of fluid) calculations.
- + Developments to =TimeActivatedExplicitSource=, a class that allows a
- source to be applied to an equation according to an input dictionary at
- run-time, that can be switched on at particular times and within
- particular regions of the mesh, using =cellZones=.
-
-* Solvers
- A number of new solvers have been developed for a range of engineering
- applications. There has been a set of improvements to certain classes of
- solver that are introduced in this release.
-*** *New* Solvers
- + =fireFoam=: Transient solver for fires and turbulent diffusion flames.
- + =rhoPorousMRFPimpleFoam=: Transient solver for laminar or turbulent flow
- of compressible fluids with support for porous media and MRF for HVAC and
- similar applications. Uses the flexible PIMPLE (PISO-SIMPLE) solution for
- time-resolved and pseudo-transient simulations.
- + =chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam=: Steady-state version of =chtMultiRegionFoam=.
- + =porousSimpleFoam=: Steady-state solver for incompressible, turbulent
- flow with implicit or explicit porosity treatment.
- + =interMixingFoam=: Solver for 3 incompressible fluids, two of which are
- miscible, using a VoF method to capture the interface.
- + =porousInterFoam=: Solver for 2 incompressible, isothermal immiscible
- fluids using a VoF phase-fraction based interface capturing approach.
- + =simpleWindFoam=: Steady-state solver for incompressible, turbulent flow
- with external source in the momentum equation to approximate, e.g. wind
- turbines; located in tutorials, with associated =turbineSiting= test
- case.
-*** Modifications to multiphase and buoyant solvers
- + Multiphase and buoyant flow solvers now solve for =p_rgh= = =p - rho*g.h=,
- rather than the static pressure =p=. This change is to avoid deficiencies
- in the handling of the pressure force / buoyant force balance on
- non-orthogonal and distorted meshes.
- + Improvements to boundary conditions and pressure referencing in closed
- domains have been developed to avoid the problems encountered in previous
- attempts to decompose pressure for buoyant flow.
- + The following solvers have been modified for =p_rgh=: =fireFoam=
- =buoyantBoussinesqPimpleFoam=, =buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam=,
- =buoyantPimpleFoam=, =buoyantSimpleFoam=, =chtMultiRegionFoam=,
- =chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam=, =compressibleInterDyMFoam=,
- =compressibleInterFoam=, =interDyMFoam=, =porousInterFoam=,
- =MRFInterFoam=, =interFoam=, =interPhaseChangeFoam=,
- =multiphaseInterFoam=, =settlingFoam=, =twoLiquidMixingFoam=.
-*** Modifications to solvers for sensible enthalpy
- + The following solvers have been modified to solve for =hs= (instead of
- =h=): =dieselEngineFoam=, =dieselFoam=, =reactingFoam=,
- =rhoReactingFoam=, =coalChemistryFoam=,
- =porousExplictSourceReactingParcelFoam=, =reactingParcelFoam=.
-*** Modifications to steady-state compressible solvers
- + Boundedness to the thermodynamics is ensured by limiting the density,
- rather than the pressure. This improves convergence by maintaining
- consistency between the pressure gradient and momentum changes
- + Removed the Sp "boundedness" correction in the convection term from the
- momentum equation.
- + The following solvers have been modified with this change:
- =rhoSimpleFoam=, =buoyantSimpleFoam=, =chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam=
-*** Other modifications
- + Added diffusion number limit to the time-step correction in
- =chtMultiRegionFoam=.
- + Reformulated pressure correction during phase change to maintain
- boundedness of pressure in =cavitatingFoam=.
-
-* Boundary conditions
- New boundary conditions have been introduced to support new applications in
- OpenFOAM.
- + Added new time varying boundary conditions.
- + Added new velocity inlets and wall boundary conditions:
- =cylindricalInletVelocity=, =swirlFlowRateInletVelocity=,
- =translatingWallVelocity=.
- + Added boundary conditions for wind/atmospheric simulation:
- =atmBoundaryLayerInletEpsilon=, =atmBoundaryLayerInletVelocity=,
- =fixedShearStress=.
-
-* Utilities
- There have been some utilities added and updated in this release.
-*** *New* utilities
- + =foamToTecplot360=: Tecplot binary file format writer.
- + =IFCLookUpTableGen=: Infinitely-fast chemistry (IFC) look-up table
- generator that calculates the infinitely-fast chemistry relationships as a
- function of =ft= for a given fuel.
-*** Updated utilities
- + =gmshToFoam=: adapted for msh2.1 and 2.2 format.
- + =snappyHexMesh=: lower memory usage by pre-balancing and non-blocking
- transfers.
- + =blockMesh=: proper spline edges.
- + =setSet=: handling of faceZoneSet, cellZoneSet, pointZoneSet.
- + =splitMeshRegions=: option to use existing cellZones only for split.
- + =changeDictionary=: allow wildcards in changeDictionaryDict.
-
-* Post-processing
- Post-processing has been extended particularly to function objects, the
- on-the-fly post-processing system.
- + *New* =fieldValues= function object, allows spatial averaging, sum,
- min/max calculations to be made on fields in sets of cells or faces in the
- geometry
- + *New* =surfaceInterpolateFields= function object to generate surface fields
- from volume fields where required
- + *New* =sampledTriSurfaceMesh= surface type for surface sampling function
- object
- + *New* =readFields= function object controls the loading of fields from time
- directories for further post-processing
-
-* New tutorials
- There is a large number of new tutorials to support the new solvers in the
- release.
- + =combustion/fireFoam/les/smallPoolFire2D=
- + =combustion/reactingFoam/ras/counterFlowFlame2D=
- + =compressible/rhoPorousMRFPimpleFoam/mixerVessel2D=
- + =heatTransfer/chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam/multiRegionHeater=

-<div class="outline-text-3" id="text-4.2">
-
-<ul>
-<li>
-Multiphase and buoyant flow solvers now solve for <code>p_rgh</code> = <code>p - rho*g.h</code>,

-in the handling of the pressure force / buoyant force balance on
-non-orthogonal and distorted meshes.
-</li>
-<li>
-Improvements to boundary conditions and pressure referencing in closed
-domains have been developed to avoid the problems encountered in previous
-attempts to decompose pressure for buoyant flow.

-
-<ul>
-<li>
-Boundedness to the thermodynamics is ensured by limiting the density,
-rather than the pressure. This improves convergence by maintaining
-consistency between the pressure gradient and momentum changes
-</li>
