HELYX-OS is an Open Source preprocessing Graphical User Interface designed to work with OPENFOAM® (currently v2.3.0). The GUI is developed by Engys using Java+VTK and delivered to the public under the GNU General Public License.

The main features of HELYX-OS are:
✓ Create and run new CFD cases from scratch in serial or parallel.
✓ Native support for OPENFOAM® dictionary files
✓ Load existing cases by reading settings directly from the available project text files.
✓ Control snappyHexMesh, including geometry display and execution within the GUI.
✓ Comprehensive case definition module, including controls for physical models, turbulence, boundary conditions, field initialisation and solver execution within the GUI.

HELYX-OS currently supports the following solvers:

Flow Type Solver
Incompressible simpleFoam and pimpleFoam with fvOptions for MRF and porous flows, pisoFoam
Compressible rhoSimpleFoam and rhoPimpleFoam with fvOptions for MRF and porous flows and sonicFoam
Heat Transfer and Bouyancy Driven buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam, buoyantBoussinesqPimpleFoam, and buoyantSimpleFoam/buoyantPimpleFoam with fvOptions for MRF and porous flows
Multiphase interFoam
