Internship Title: GUI Development for OpenFOAM, a computational fluid dynamics package

Internship Description: OpenFOAM is a tool used to solve fluid flow and heat transfer problems with applicability in Aerospace, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering fields. It is a C++ based coding tool and does not possess a good user interface. Currently, we at FOSSEE, have used a combination of open-source software Python scripts and Blender, to build a prototype GUI. We would like to build on this and extend the capability of this GUI.

Currently, the GUI is built so that it is able to solve 1 fluid-based problem (a tutorial). We would like to extend the GUI's capability to act as the front end through which users can solve 10 more problems that we have in our repository. Previously coded modules will be made available to enable the extension of this GUI.

The intern will work largely in the Python and Blender environments under the guidance of the Python and the OpenFOAM FOSSEE teams. Proficiency in Python is important, and familiarity with Blender is preferred.
