CFDTool™ is a MATLAB® Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Toolbox for modeling and simulation of fluid flows with coupled heat transfer, with full integration with the OpenFOAM and SU2 solvers. Based on the FEATool Multiphysics simulation platform, CFDTool is specifically designed to make fluid dynamics and heat transfer simulations both easy and enjoyable.
Basic use and how to set up, model, and simulate turbulent flow over a backwards facing step with OpenFOAM is explained in the video tutorial linked below. Note that the tutorial illustrates the FEATool GUI interface, which differs somewhat from the CFDTool interface.
The CFDTool MATLAB Toolbox includes the following features:
- completely stand-alone and self-contained toolbox
- fully integrated and easy to use Graphical User Interface (GUI)
- modeling and simulation in 1D, 2D, 3D, and axisymmetric coordinate systems
- seamless OpenFOAM® and SU2 CFD solver integrations
- built-in geometry and CAD tools
- automatic mesh and grid generation
- pre-defined equations and boundary conditions:
+ incompressible viscous fluid flows (Navier-Stokes equations)
+ compressible inviscid flows (Euler equations)
+ heat transfer (Convection and Conduction)
- multiphysics support for fluid flow and thermal analysis
- simulation of laminar and turbulent flows (Spalart-Allmaras,
k-epsilon, and k-omega turbulence models available with OpenFOAM/SU2)
- stationary and time-dependent analysis types
- postprocessing and visualization
