OpenFOAM is an open source software package which is designed to scale well on large distributed memory systems. While originally written for CFD, with its open source strategy and a large user base OpenFOAM has grown to be a general purpose finite element toolbox. This tutorial will cover the basics of using OpenFOAM to set up, solve, and view results for a variety of physical models. Techniques for running OpenFOAM on thousands of cores will be discussed. A hands-on session in 575 Walter will immediately follow this one-hour presentation.
