About the course

During this 2-day training, the participants will be introduced to the open-source CFD technology OpenFOAM® using HELYX-OS. The most commonly used CFD solver capabilities of OpenFOAM® will be explored, combined with an in-depth look in the structure of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Library, which forms the base of all OpenFOAM® fluid flow solvers. The open-source native GUI HELYX-OS, developed by Engys Ltd. will be used extensively. 
The participants will be introduced to fluid dynamics and corresponding CFD methods and solvers that are available in OpenFOAM®. The front-end software package HELYX-OS will be introduced and extensively used to model and analyze industrial case studies in different fields such as incompressible/compressible flows, heat transfer and multiphase flows. The training course material has been developed by Engys Ltd. (the developers of HELYX-OS) and will be presented by one of the DRG consultants who actively uses OpenFOAM® and HELYX-OS within their project work.
