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 topics of OpenFOAM.
