Before running any CFD simulations we need to generate a mesh around our geometry to perform calculations on. This page is meant to document the standard process we use to generate this mesh for ARIS rockets. Inputs: Geometry exported from some CAD software in named STL format. The sample OpenFOAM case folder (ofcase_heidi_fullbody_meshing) Outputs: 3D
This page is meant as a reference of the principal components and other useful information about the OpenFOAM CFD toolkit.
This page is meant to give an overview of the general CFD workflow when in a large team, such as ARIS Space.
In autumn 2018, I teamed up with classmates Silvia Nauer and Mikael Stellio for a project in the ETHZ course Physically-Based Simulation for Computer Graphics. The objective of our project was to create a video of a meteorite crashing into the sea, by implementing our own FLIP fluids solver and rendering the video with Blender.
