– the study, change the original Source code
– Freely Share and Distribute the CFD Software Source Code for Personal Use (Both Commercial & Non-Commercial)
– Customize to upgrade the Open Source software application

 

Such a Versatile license Policy Framework generally make sure that the open source software program pack is Freely distributed Freely in the public domain and remains free of High charges.
At the same time, Free public access of the software source code helps to retain a wide Pool of audience and volunteer developer community base.
In the case of open source CFD Fluid Flow Simulation Software solution packages such as OpenFoam, they have Steeper learning curve for the average user, but it can save you a lot of money and licensing cost, particularly if you’re not a student or in academia where using of Free Academic account license or Trial software (which can be downloaded from the website) is quite common

 

OpenFoam CFD Software

One of the industry Leading, most popular and Commonly used all-purpose open-source CFD software package is known as OpenFOAM. While the official OpenFOAM software version release is periodically maintained by the OpenFOAM Foundation, a few splinter cell groups have separated with unique code variants in order to commercialize certain aspect of their code modifications to the main Source code, usually through CFD Simulation consulting service.
Some of the major variants of the Free Open Foam Software solution includes
– blueCFD-core
– openFOAM+
– SU2 (Stanford University)
– Lattice-Boltzmann solver Palabos.

 
 

Advantages of Open Source CFD Software

The main arguments for the adoption of open-source CFD software solution are the following.

 

1. Open Source License Policy on Software Distribution 

An open sourced Software distribution approach means that it is freely licensed free from any cost restrictions, making it increasingly cost-effective as your Simulation usage requirement increases over time.

 

2. Long Term Sustainable Reliability & Maintenance of Source Code 

If a Software code is publicly distributed Worldwide, it will tend to be relatively more reliable and accurate as a natural consequence of the CFD Source code being Closely examined and Refined by a large public group of diverse and Experienced Software developers all motivated to make sure that the source code performs well without any Errors.

 

3. Customization & Reconfigurability of Source Code by End Users 

In addition, if an end user has the prior Job experience in Technical coding, software development skill and Appreciation of the specific Industrial research application the CFD Software is being used for, they can have the Full Autonomy to add useful functionality through additional Code modification.

 
 

Disadvantages of Open Source CFD Software

On the other hand, one of the main arguments against open-source is

 

1. Limited user technical support Services & Resources for End users, resulting in difficulty in attempting to book a ticket support

 

2. A natural higher cost of long term Operating Cost & Ownership Cost relating to reduced overall usability, which results in longer Classroom training hours needed to be spent on watching Tutorial Video content resources on online Training site due to a higher Software learning curve

 

3. Lack of specialized simulation Solving capabilities for unique physics events
4. A requirement for additional software modules transfer add-on from other 3rd party Software company, such as pre-processing and post-processor modules, which add a separated Layer of Dependency in the Source Code.

Open Source Wrappers

In order to make open-source CFD Software more intuitive to the inexperienced engineer and user-friendly to Novice users, CFD Software developers have Developers Embedded middleware in the form of wrapped codes such as Open-FOAM which is more intuitive.
It has a Graphically Driven GUI Simulation view environment with a GUI Interface which is integrated with additional processing software modules, such as pre-processing Solvers and post-processors.
Examples are Visual-CFD, HELYX, and simFlow.

 

The Industry Trend of Online Cloud-Based CFD Simulation

A recent Dramatic twist on this software development approach in the Engineering Consulting industry now is that of online cloud-based High-Performance Computing (HPC) CFD simulation methods which Only relies on a web browser to carry out the actual customized CAE simulation solving process.
Two Examples of such Highly dynamic and scalable HPC Cloud-based CFD simulation platforms include
1. Siemens Simcenter STAR CCM+ HPC Power on Demand
2. SimScale

 

1. Advantages of Wapper Platforms

The obvious arguments for using a wrapper software is that they can provide some of the immediate convenience of a full-service commercial CFD software platform at a much lower Affordable price point.

 

2. Disadvantages of Wapper Platforms

On the downside, the disadvantage of wrapper platforms is that they don’t overcome some of the key limitations of open-source Software, such as limited & non-comprehensive user technical Tech support services and lack of specialized solving capabilities needed for niche high Test simulation applications.

 

Dependency on 3rd Party Software Modules
Wrappers effectively serve as a middleware which does provide the end user the Full Benefit of accessing just a single unified graphical user interface but suffer from the disadvantage that the platform setup involves an added level of Dependency and undesired separation between the End-user and the Actual execution Source code File.
Both of which places an undesired increase in computation demand on the precious CPU processors and computational resources
Adding another level of add-on software code increases the Chances for software errors to occur, which volunteer developers may be responsive to Address due to the fact that it is Open source and not commercial.
