OpenFOAM is free and open-source software package distributed by OpenCFD Ltd and the OpenFOAM Foundation.
It is an extensive C++ library which is used to solve computational continuum mechanic problems using the Finite Volume Method.
Although, primarily developed for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), OpenFOAM has an extensive range of solvers (80+ solvers) including combustion, solid mechanics and electromagnetic flows.
In recent years, OpenFOAM has gained popularity by engaging a large user base in both companies and academic organisations.
This free course will comprise of two sessions and is intended for beginners with no previous experience of using OpenFOAM.
Existing users can also benefit by broadening their knowledge and learning new techniques.
We will familiarise ourselves with the OpenFOAM environment and understand the basic working of the software including meshing, solving and post-processing.
The learning process will be enhanced through a series of hands-on tutorials.
By the end of the course, the participants will be able to run OpenFOAM simulations effectively and independently.
1. Registering for this free course is a must due to limited spaces (Please see link at the bottom of the page).
2. The language of instruction for the course will be English.
3. No prior knowledge of C++ and Linux is required but some basic knowledge will be beneficial.
