BlockRanger: All-hexahedral, Mapped grid/Mesh Generation Software

BlockRanger is a fully interactive, volume mesh generation plug-in for the Rhinoceros 5.0 3D CAD system.  BlockRanger converts Rhino 5 solids into blocks of high-quality hexahedral (brick) elements for use with most engineering analysis packages that require hexahedral meshing and a strict control of element quality, spatial distribution, and orientation. http://www.itascacg.com/software/blockranger

OpenFoam & CFD Literature

OpenFOAM related literature The Users Guide, that comes along with OpenFOAM. The Programmers Guide, that also comes along with OpenFOAM. It can be regarded as more of an extended Users Guide, so don’t feel intimidated, if you are not a proficient C++ programmer (yet). The OpenFOAM PhD course of Håkan Nilsson from Chalmers contains a variety of different information on various […]
