Dutch OpenFOAM® Users Group

On Thursday, November 5, 2015 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 foruth 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.

Last year, the von Karman Institute has been recognized as the Belgian contact point for OpenFoam and has been allowed to give courses to external people. In March, they will organize both two courses and a workshop on OpenFOAM in the vicinity of Brussels.

The Faculty of Geosciences of Utrecht University is looking for a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in micro/nano -scale modelling, and who is familiar with or has an interest in imaging 3D pore-networks in geo-materials, solid catalysts, and nanomaterials in general. Applicants should have experience in the use of numerical simulations of fluid flow, solute transport and/or crystallization phenomena in micro/nano-porous media (e.g., using CFDpackages such as OpenFOAM ) within a high performance computing environment.

The 7th meeting of the Dutch OpenFOAM User Group will take place on Thursday, November 20th, 2014 in the afternoon. The international speaker is Bastian Dose from Germany, who will be talking about OpenFOAM in wind energy research. In addition, there will be a variety of talks about martime applications of OpenFOAM, about fluid-structure interaction modelling and about morphodynamics.
