I was hoping there was some representative CFD model that everyone  
could use to evaluate performance. My background is in FEA so am  
familiar with matrix decomposition and iterative solvers. I would  
guess OpenFOAM implements some kind of iterative solver? So any large  
mesh would suit to test performance.
