DAFoam v3 released for MDO

We just released a major DAFoam upgrade to version 3. In version 3, we have developed an efficient interface to integrate DAFoam with OpenMDAO for multidisciplinary design optimization through the Mphys interface. Refer to the v3.0.0 release note for more details. While most of the settings are...

DAFoam GUI released

We have developed a ParaView-based GUI to setup and run airfoil aerodynamic optimization with DAFoam. Check out this YouTube video We can setup flow conditions and optimization parameters in ParaView and hit a button to run the optimization with real-time post-processing. If you want to try this GUI, check...

We will organize an online DAFoam workshop on June 9, 2021, from 9 am to 12 pm EST. The objective of this workshop is to get you familiar with how to run optimizations with DAFoam. To be more specific, we will go over the OpenFOAM and DAFoam configuration files (e.g.,...

DAFoam v2.2 released with Jacobian free adjoint

This release contains a major update that adds the Jacobian-free adjoint capability using automatic-differentiation. Added the Jacobian-free adjoint solution capability. There is no need to explicitly compute the state Jacobian matrix, which increases the adjoint solution speed. Enabled loading two DAFoam solvers in the Python layer,...
