User OpenFOAM® training detail

We would like to offer our User OpenFOAM® training to all those who are new to OpenFOAM®, have no experience in this area whatsoever, but it may be also of interest for those who have already experienced OpenFOAM® in the past and want to improve their skills. In two days, divided into four thematic sections, the trainee receives an overview of the possibilities of OpenFOAM®. They learn to run different types of CFD simulations, set the boundary conditions and parameters for calculations, prepare computational meshes and evaluate the results.

Day 1Day 2
  ∇  what is OpenFOAM®, its philosophy and OpenFOAM® structure
  ∇  basic orientation in Linux/UNIX environment
  ∇  grid generation - blockMesh
  ∇  case setup - initial and boundary conditions
  ∇  parallel computing
  ∇  results evaluation using OpenFOAM® and ParaView
  ∇  advanced grid generation - snappyHexMesh
  ∇  boundary conditions and solvers in OpenFOAM®
  ∇  RANS turbulence modeling
  ∇  external aerodynamics tutorial
  ∇  modeling of rotation, moving meshes, multiphase flows
  ∇  advanced postprocessing, convergence monitoring

Advanced OpenFOAM® training detail

The Advanced OpenFOAM® training is suitable for participants of User training and also for those who already have an existing OpenFOAM® user experience and want to continue and develop their special skills even further. The two-day advanced training is also spread into four thematic blocks. You will look at the source code and gradually implement and test advanced techniques for preprocessing, postprocessing, editing solvers, boundary conditions and turbulence models.

Day 1Day 2
  ∇  orientation in the source code of OpenFOAM®
  ∇  implementation of the new OpenFOAM® solver
  ∇  illustration of mesh refinement
  ∇  implementation of utilities for preprocessing/postprocessing
  ∇  multiphysics: flows with heat transfer and conduction
  ∇  coupling of different mesh types - multi-region case
  ∇  example of implementation of the new boundary condition
  ∇  example of creating a new turbulence model
  ∇  advanced external aerodynamics of car
  ∇  specialized functions in ParaView
  ∇  postprocessing in GnuPlot (plots of selected values)
  ∇  command line scripting (bash)

Each participant can bring a test case, or the problem that he/she would like to solve using OpenFOAM®. Our lecturers will advice him/her and recommend him/her the most suitable solution.

Turbulence training detail

Turbulence training is a special CFD workshop (performed in OpenFOAM®), which guides a trainee over various CFD Turbulence modeling methods. On standard benchmark test cases the turbulence modeling methods are discussed aiming on their benefits and drawbacks.
