Introduction to using OpenFOAM for CFD analysis

On November 23, 2018 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.
 
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. The complete program and learning objectives of the course are listed below.

Kind regards,
 
Dr.ir. Duncan R. van der Heul
