Abstract: Over the past 30 years, the cell-centred finite volume method has developed to become a viable alternative to the finite element method in the field of computational solid mechanics. The current article presents an open-source toolbox for solid mechanics and fluid-solid interaction simulations based on the finite volume library OpenFOAM. The object-oriented toolbox design is outlined, where emphasis has been given to code use, comprehension, maintenance and extension. The toolbox capabilities are demonstrated on a number of representative test problems, where comparisons are given with finite element solutions.
