Ya its me Dhasthagheer. I have completed my MCA . I am proudly saying “I am active member of Kanchi Linux User Group ( and Indian Linux User Group”.

I keen interest in Linux and Scientific visualization. I gave blog name as “Scientific visual coder” , I posting my experience on CFD and scientific visualization.

Currently I am working as a Project staff (Physics simulator) in Indian Institute of Technology , Bombay

Any feedbacks and comments would be appreciated.

Be as smart as you can..!..

    I am glad I found your blog. Keep the good work going. I am not a CFD modeler but work in scientific programming.

    I am also working on OpenFoam. but i am very new to it..
    Could you tell me more about how to start about with it..

      Hi Unnikrishnan

      Sorry for late reply. Once time, Same question I asked in CFD mailing list. I am going to forward same replies to you. First, You have to read Fluid Dynamics if you are not having engineering background. Then, go through CFD concept then read openfoam user guide.

    interesting blog!

    Do you have experience with OpenFoam functions lift/drag and streamlining virtualisation using paraFoam or the new streamlining functions (OpenFoam 2.0 Function Objects)?

    I can hardly find any example where these things have been implemented (I work on 3D hydrodynamics/hydrofoils)!

    Maybe that’s something for your section “One Application One Day”.

    I am currently working on a setup leveraging my GPU to speed things up – maybe that’s something we can discuss in the near future?!

      Hi Klaus,

      Sorry, I am not work with that. Do you want to calculate the lift and drag during the simulation, or do you want to do it as a post-processing step once the simulation is done??

      Have a look at the folder below you can find some idea

    I just went through your blog, Its simply awesome. I am working on a project using OpenFOAM at University at Buffalo, Center for Computational Research. I am not a computer sciencitist, so I was not able to understand each and every script you wrote, but at least I understood my part. Thanks again and Keep this great work going.

    Hi Dhasta,

    Hope you are doing well, i am a graduate of B.E Automotive Engineering with a high interest in Aerodynamics and CFD.I have basic working knowledge in ANSYS from Uni.I am now looking for open foam and star ccm+ training courses.i hope you can suggest some good training centers in India and any tips in this field will be very helpful.
