OpenFOAM® Installation

OpenFOAM®  Installation

OpenCFD Limited uses Docker Hub to distribute pre-compiled versions of OpenFOAM+ for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows, including a complete development environment.

Docker containers enable binaries compiled on a given Linux environment to be run on other platforms without any performance degradation. Docker also operates on Windows and Mac OS X wrapped in a light-weight Virtual Box.

An image of OpenFOAM+ contains binaries and source code. The Docker environment provides:

  • A complete development environment to compile local modifications and create executables.
  • A consistent behaviour of the OpenFOAM+ across all platforms

Check if your (Linux or Windows or Mac OS X) system is supported by visiting https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/
