About the course

During this 2-day training, the participants will be introduced to the open-source CFD technology OpenFOAM®. 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 participants will be introduced to fluid dynamics and corresponding CFD methods and solvers that are available in OpenFOAM®. Participants analyze industrial case studies in different fields such as incompressible/compressible flows, heat transfer and multiphase flows.This course will be presented by one of the DRG consultants who actively uses OpenFOAM® within their project work.
