ITHACA-FV - In real Time Highly Advanced Computational Applications for Finite Volumes

ITHACA-FV (In real Time Highly Advanced Computational Applications for Finite Volumes) is C++ library based on the finite volume solver OpenFOAM . It consists of the implementation of several reduced order modeling techniques for parametrized problems. ITHACA-FV can also be used as a basis for more advanced projects that would like to assess the capability of reduced order models in their existing OpenFOAM-based software, thanks to the availability of several reduced order methods and algorithms.

ITHACA-FV is designed for OpenFOAM 5.0 but it can be easily adapted also to other versions of OpenFOAM.

Linear and non-linear algebra operations which are not already implemented in OpenFOAM are performed with the external library Eigen. The source code of Eigen 3.3.4 is provided together with ITHACA-FV and is located in the src/thirdyparty/Eigen folder. For the EigenValue decomposition it is also possible to rely on the Spectra-0.6.1 library and the source code is provided in the src/thirdyparty/spectra-0.6.1 folder. 

ITHACA-FV has been tested on ubuntu 16.04 but can be easily compiled on any linux distribution with a compiled version of OpenFOAM 5.0.

ITHACA-FV is currently developed and mantained at SISSA mathLab by

under the supervision of Prof. Gianluigi Rozza.
