OpenFOAM® is a widely-used open-source code and a powerful framework for solving a variety of problems mainly in the field of CFD. The five-day workshop gives an introduction to OpenFOAM® applied on CFD phenomena and is intended for beginners as well as for people with CFD background knowledge. The user will learn about case setup, meshing tools like snappyHexMesh and cfMesh. Available OpenFOAM® utilities and additional libraries like swak4Foam, that can be used for pre- and postprocessing tasks, are further aspects of this course. Additionally, basic solvers and major aspects of code structure are highlighted. Lectures and hands-on session with typical CFD examples will guide through this course including first steps in own coding.
This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves.
The course is organized by ZIMT, University of Siegen in cooperation with HLRS (University of Stuttgart).
The preliminary course outline can be found here (PDF).
To take full advantage of the course offering it would be advisable to have a standing knowledge of using Linux, as it is used for all exercises. Basics in programming will be required for some of the exercises as well as some insights into CFD theory. Beginners in CFD striving for more theoretical understanding may first visit the course "Introduction to CFD".
The course language is German. The slides are in English.
Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
Online form not available, because this course is postponed.
