HELYX-OS was created by ENGYS to facilitate the usage of standard OpenFOAM by removing the long and complex manual text inputs required by the utilities and solvers in this code. The GUI provides a fully interactive, easy-to-use environment to perform all pre-processing tasks in the CFD process, including meshing, case definition and solver execution.
The main features of HELYX-OS can be summarised as follows:
Native support for both OpenFOAM and OpenFOAM+: load existing cases by reading settings directly from the available project text files.
Linux and Windows platforms (n.b. Windows version available to paid support customers only).
One file installation: deploy HELYX-OS and OpenFOAM in your system in one go.
Control the mesh utility snappyHexMesh, including geometry display and execution within the GUI.
Comprehensive case definition module, including controls for physical models, turbulence, boundary conditions and field initialisation.
Solver execution tab with solution residuals monitoring.
Cloud computing interface for execution of OpenFOAM via the HELYX-OS Cloud connection powered by Parallel Works.
