CFD Results - How to analyse OpenFOAM data with ParaView - 25-minute Tutorial

For more information on how to interpret CFD results: In this video we explain how to use Paraview to analyze CFD data: Installing paraview Visit and select the release & operating system that you need. Loading data How to load the mesh & field data in Paraview. Surface Methods - Surface pressure map - Surface friction map - Surface velocity map - Surface streamlines using SurfaceLIC Volume Methods - 2D slices (sections) - 2D streamlines - 3D Isosurfaces State files Saving & loading your project setup using paraview state files ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The AirShaper videos cover the basics of aerodynamics (aerodynamic drag, drag & lift coefficients, boundary layer theory, flow separation, reynolds number...), simulation aspects (computational fluid dynamics, CFD meshing, ...) and aerodynamic testing (wind tunnel testing, flow visualization, ...). We then use those basics to explain the aerodynamics of (race) cars (aerodynamic efficiency of electric vehicles, aerodynamic drag, downforce, aero maps, formula one aerodynamics, ...), drones and airplanes (propellers, airfoils, electric aviation, eVTOLS, ...), motorcycles (wind buffeting, motogp aerodynamics, ...) and more!
