Installation of openCFS and Related Software

In order to do simulations with openCFS you will require some additional software. A typical simulation workflow requires the following steps and corresponding software tools:

  1. pre-processing (geometry definition & mesh generation): openCFS supports various common mesh formats.
  2. input generation: openCFS input is in XML-format, i.e. the input can be written by any text editor.
  3. computation: install openCFS
  4. post-processing: we visualize field results using ParaView and a custom plugin to read openCFS' HDF5 data format.
