Python Utilities for OpenFOAM

Project Description

What it is

The purpose of this library is to support working with the OpenSource CFD-toolbox OpenFOAM and its forks

This Python library can be used to

  • analyze the logs produced by OpenFoam-solvers
  • execute OpenFoam-solvers and utilities and analyze their output simultaneously
  • manipulate the parameter files and the initial-conditions of a run in a non-destructive manner
  • plots the residuals of OpenFOAM solvers
  • lots of other stuff

Most of this functionality is made available to the user in the form of command-line utilities.

PyFoam does all this strictly “from the outside”: by writing parameter files and reading the output of the solvers. Without compiled parts or being linked to OpenFOAM.

More information is found on the OpenFOAM Wiki
