OpenFOAM®: OpenFOAM ( is a very popular open source CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) package. A link has been made between OpenFOAM and OpenDA to create a data-assimilation facility for OpenFOAM.
The connection was done in the simplest way: by using the OpenDA black box wrapper. The black box wrapper was improved to deal effectively with OpenFOAM data. Several experiments have been done with the OpenDA/OpenFOAM combination. These have shown that OpenDA is an effective and versatile data-assimilation facility for OpenFOAM.
