Our Mission

CFD Direct was founded by the OpenFOAM experts, who share a belief in free, open source software and have a mission to make CFD accessible and inclusive. Through our management and development of OpenFOAM, we are producing software that:

  • allows access to the implementation of scientific knowledge;
  • allows access for those who could not otherwise afford it;
  • encourages collaboration and advancement;
  • covers as many CFD applications as possible.

CFD Direct enables delivery of successful, timely CFD analysis by providing services to users of OpenFOAM, including training, code development and support. We are interested in working with others who wish to join our mission and contribute to OpenFOAM.
