OpenFOAM provides a set of solvers and methods for tackling problems in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). It is written in C++. Governing equations such as the Navier-Stokes equations can be solved in integral form. Physical processes such as phase change, droplet transport and chemical reaction can be modelled. Numerical methods are included to deal with sharp gradients, such as those encountered in flows with shock waves and flows with gas/liquid interfaces. Large problems may be split into smaller, connected problems for efficient solution on parallel systems.
