OpenFOAM Motorbike Example

OpenFOAM is an open source Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver. It is a C++ toolbox with a large library, allowing for complex models and simulations to be carried out. It also comes with packages to allow parallel computation functionality, which you are able to do easily on Rescale.

This job uses OpenFOAM to calculate the steady flow around a motorcycle and rider.
