COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS MODEL

The Computation Fluid Dynamic (CFD) model of a sugar beet clamp has been developed using the OpenFOAM open source software.

The physical model is fairly idealised, but also has a fairly good resolution and is built on some sound experimental data.

The github repository for one of the central models is open, if you’d like to download it and replicate the basic static airflow analysis that is set up (it should only take a few seconds to run), or fork it and build out the model. You need an OpenFOAM installation to run the model, ParaView to inspect the results, and a lot of knowledge to modify the model. If you don’t already have those, I can say that this will be much more difficult than running the model.
