The foam-extend project is a fork of the OpenFOAM® open source library for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The goal of the Extend-Project is to open the OpenFOAM® CFD toolbox to community contributed extensions in the spirit of the OpenSource development model. Previously known as OpenFOAM®-dev and OpenFOAM®-extend, it contains bug fixes and performance improvements. It also contains extensions and additional features provided by community contributors, such as dynamic mesh and topological change support, turbomachinery extensions including general grid interpolation (GGI), cyclic GGI and mixing place, block-coupled matrix support, finite area method, comprehensive mesh motion capability and GPU support.
