Dutch OpenFOAM Users Group
This is the site of the Dutch OpenFOAM users group which has been active since 2010.
OpenFOAM is a C++ toolbox for the customisation and extension of numerical solvers for continuum mechanics problems, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD). It comes with a growing collection of pre-written solvers applicable to a wide range of problems. It is produced by the UK company OpenCFD Ltd. and is released as open source under the GPL.
There is a rapidly growing interest and development of OpenFOAM at universities, research institutes, and industries. It is an important platform for smooth and rapid transition of ideas, methods, and software developed at universities to research institutes and industries. Since it is open source all details of the used methods are available. Many companies are considering OpenFOAM as a cheap and flexible alternative to commercial CFD packages.
The growing interest in the Netherlands has led to an initiative for creating a Dutch OpenFOAM users group. The group is intended for the exchange of experience and expertise among OpenFOAM users in the Netherlands.
OpenFoam for combustion workshop in Brussels July 3rd-5th
