Recently, several open source codes for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) have been emerged and are spreading fast. Our group has chosen OpenFOAM as a platform to develop our own in-house code. In this paper, we would like to share the information on the codes and what we have experienced so far. We introduce several features of OpenFOAM, which include the performance compared with commercial packages, estimation for current user population and our own prospect for future improvement in performance and growth in user population. In addition, we briefly introduce our experience gained in embedding the level set method into the OpenFOAM.
