      OpenFOAM vs ANSYS Fluent opinions
      Almost everyone thinks OpenFOAM is a great alternative to ANSYS Fluent.
      most powerful alternative but unfortunately it has a steep learning curve and is time consuming to work with even after learning. it will be the best if it has a graphical user interface (GUI).
