Micro & Nano Flows Software Downloads

We develop a number of software applications, primarily within the open source CFD software package OpenFOAM. We provide two key applications, mdFoam+ and dsmcFoam+, these are direct continuations of the applications found by downloading the standard OpenFOAM package.

Our software is available as a customised OpenFOAM repository through a public GitHub repository here. Installing this will povide a fully working OpenFOAM installation along with our updated Molecular Dynamics (mdFoam+) and Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (dsmcFoam+) applications as well as new tutorial cases and associated documentation.

The repository can be downloaded directly as a TarBall here or as a Zip file here.

We welcome interaction from other researchers/enthusiasts and will consider any application for addition to the developer team for our software projects. Please use GitHub to apply for these rights if you would like them.
