CFD simulations involving 3D complex geometry have become the norm, however, this hasn’t lessened the…
The next major version of Caelus, 9.04, was released today. This release focused on bring some major libraries inline with the current OpenFOAM release (v6) and improvement to the Caelus Python library. Here’s a summary of the major changes:
- Updated thermophysical library
- Updated Lagrangian library
- Automatic parameterized simulations with CPL.
- Run separate versions of Caelus side-by-side using CPL.
- Compile Caelus and external applications using CPL.
- Caelus documentation moved to Read The Docs http://caelus.readthedocs.io
Download packages are now hosted with the source code repository https://bitbucket.org/appliedccm/caelus-cml. Installation instructions and download package links can be found at https://www.caelus-cml.com/download/ .
If you’re not already familiar with Caelus, you can read more about it on the website. Its free and open-source. The file formats are compatible with OpenFOAM but there have been many improvements to it such that it is now moving independently in its own direction.
Applied CCM is currently the maintainer and main developer of Caelus. If you’re interested in porting or developing your own application to Caelus, we’ll be happy to provide guidance. If you’ve developed a solver or model that you would like to include in Caelus check out the contributors repository. Any and all external contributors copyright will be kept in their contributed source files.
