Dutch OpenFOAM® Users Group

The 7th International OpenFOAM® Workshop (June 25-28, 2012) intends to bring together OpenFOAM®'s developers and users from around the world, to promote collaborative activities, exchange information and share experiences in similar areas of interest. This year, the Workshop is organized nearby: in Darmstadt.

The next user meeting of the Dutch OpenFOAM user group will take place at Delft University of Technology on June 12, 2012. We have an interesting program with speakers from various places in Europe, touching on a range of interesting subjects.

On June 20, 2012 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.

The course is organized in the framework of the Dutch OpenFOAM user group (DOUG), by members of the Numerical Analysis group of the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) and the Aerodynamics group of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of Delft University of Technology. This is the third time this course is taught and the organizers have used all the feedback from the first two editions to further improve the course material. There are now five tutorials available, and the participants can choose three that best suit their interest.

The Cooperative Research Ships (CRS) project OSCAR is objectively evaluating OpenFOAM for use on marine hydrodynamics type problems. It is proposed to carry out a study to thoroughly evaluate the code on a few selected problems. Aspects in the evaluation include user-friendliness of the meshing program and solver, accuracy of the calculations, accuracy of the results, comparison of results to other CFD codes and experimental results.

If these results are positive, the CRS could collectively use a free CFD code as workhorse for viscous and inertial flow calculations. The shared knowledge and developments are aspects that will benefit the whole CRS community.
