  • Solvers are executable applications for numerical simulations of Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Source code of solvers is located in the path of system variable $FOAM_SOLVERS
  • You can jump to the OpenFOAM solvers directory e.g using system variable
    # cd $FOAM_SOLVERS
  • You can jump to the OpenFOAM solvers directory e.g using alias sol:
    # sol
    # ls -l
  • Basic types of solvers:
