DRG at the introductory course OpenFOAM for CFD analysis

Today Dynaflow Research Group will join the TU Delft Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (DCSE) in hosting an introductory course in the use of OpenFOAM for computational fluid dynamics analysis. This course will be given at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of Delft University of Technology, in Delft.

This course aims at MSc/PhD students and industry staff members who like to get familiar with OpenFOAM for fluid dynamics applications. The course is intended for beginners with no previous experience in OpenFOAM, however, the some entry-level skills are expected.

Study goals:
•Generate unstructured and multi-block structured meshes using Gmsh (open source)
•Set up and run basic CFD simulations using OpenFOAM
•Visualize results using Paraview (open source)
•To get an overview of the available solvers in OpenFOAM for different application fields
•Adjust existing tutorials of advanced solvers for their own flow cases

OpenFOAM is a C++ toolbox for the customization and extension of numerical solvers for continuum mechanics problems, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD). It has a large user base across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and academic organizations. OpenFOAM has an extensive range of features to solve anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence and heat transfer, to acoustics, solid mechanics and electromagnetics.
