Case structure

OpenFOAM cases are configured using several plain text input files located across the three directories:

system

constant

  • polyMesh
  • <constant dictionaries>

<initial time directory>

  • <field files>

Additional directories can be generated, depending on user selections. These may include:

  • <result time directories>: field predictions as a function of iteration count or time
  • postProcessing: data typically generated by function objects
  • data conversion, e.g. VTK
