FreeFOAM is a cross-platform toolkit for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) based on OpenFOAM®. It is geared towards "freeing" OpenFOAM from its system dependence, enabling it to run natively on a variety of operating systems. Currently it still requires a Unix-like environment. FreeFOAM has been tested to build (and partially to run) on
FreeFOAM uses the excellent cross-platform build system CMake thanks to which FreeFOAM can now be installed just like any other software and doesn’t depend on a slew of shell init scripts and a huge number of environment variables to build and run, making live easier for system administrators and users alike.
