  • The solver for two-phase flow within porous media by means of the VARANS equations (Download )

IHFOAM was initially developed to simulate numerically all the processes related to coastal engineering. In a constant development, IHFOAM has now become a more friendly and flexible tool by adding all the known capabilities to a graphical user interface. Written in Python, this new capability decreases considerably the learning curve and provides engineers a powerful tool to deal with projects in a visual way.

Apart from the source code we offer some documentation files and tutorials, also for free, when you register using the following form.
