Dutch OpenFOAM® Users Group

CERN is interested to meet candidates with a strong OpenFOAM background for a post-doc position regarding the modeling of complex thermo-hydraulic processes for the cryogenic analysis of the LHC magnet cooling system and the thermal design of new accelerator magnets.

On January 15, 2013 an introductory course in the use of OpenFOAM for computational fluid dynamics analysis will be given at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of Delft University of Technology, in Delft.

You will learn all the steps involved in computational fluid dynamics analysis using Open Source algorithms: geometry modeling, mesh generation, the actual computation and visualization for some basic applications. Additionally, you will be taught how to define a simple model in OpenFOAM. The course will almost entirely consist of hands-on Lab sessions, with only a brief introduction to the theoretical background of OpenFOAM.

On March 20-21, 2013, the first Symposium on OpenFOAM in Wind Energy will take place in Oldenburg, Germany. Topics of interest include aerodynamics of wind turbines, atmospheric boundary layer flows and site assessment, turbulence and meshing.

The first edition of the SOWE conference is organized by ForWind - Center for Wind Energy Research of the Universities of Oldenburg, Hannover and Bremen, and Fraunhofer IWES - Institute for wind energy and energy system technology in Bremerhaven, Hannover, Kassel and Oldenburg. For more information, please visit the symposium site.

The fifth meeting of the Dutch OpenFOAM User Group will take place on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 in the afternoon. We will once again present an interesting program with presentations of OpenFOAM users from various backgrounds. The very active OpenFOAM group from the university of Oldenburg (Germany) will deliver a presentation on the use of OpenFOAM for wind energy applications. Professor Kleijn from TUD will talk about forces in multiphase flows and Joris Poort from Rescale.com will give a presentation about running OpenFOAM in a Cloud computing environment. As usual, Hrvoje Jasak will join the meeting and give a presentation about the latest developments in OpenFOAM.
