OpenFOAM

OpenFOAM is the leading free, open-source software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). This test profile currently uses the drivaerFastback test case for analyzing automotive aerodynamics or alternatively the older motorBike input.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark openfoam.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

OpenFOAM 10

Input: drivaerFastback, Small Mesh Size - Execution Time

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 78 public results since 17 September 2022 with the latest data as of 4 October 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (OpenFOAM 10 - Input: drivaerFastback, Small Mesh Size - Execution Time) has an average run-time of 8 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 1 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
