openFoam parallel computation

Leon Robers
Hi Johan

Is it possible to activate parallel computation of OpenFOAM for large CFD problems in the specifications of the fea-tool "openfoam" function using windows?

Parallel simulations are certainly on the roadmap for the future, it is however often non-trivial to implement as it typically can not easily be done automatically by just setting a solver flag, but often involves (significant) pre-processing (domain decomposition as in splitting the grid in to "suitable" parallel blocks), (parallel) solver control and monitoring, as well as post-processing (collecting and compiling the parallel data).

You can try to use the openfoam( fea, 'mode', 'export', ... ) functionality to export your serial OpenFOAM case files, and manually write some scripts to modify, paralleize and run simulations in parallel.
