Wolf Dynamics - Multiphysics simulations, optimization, and data analytics

OpenFOAM Introductory Training

OpenFOAM® introductory training         

Next scheduled session: July, 2019. Summer session. We still need to define the dates, but it will take place in July for sure.

Course syllabus
Day 1 OpenFOAM® executive summary, library organization, OpenFOAM® 101, my first tutorial, documentation overview
Day 2 FVM/CFD 101, setting the right numerics, running in parallel, CAD 101, mesh generation and mesh quality assessment
Day 3 More on mesh generation, post-processing, setting cases from scratch (from geometry and mesh generation, to case setup, to post-processing)
Day 4 Advanced physics, setting cases from scratch, introduction to programming in OpenFOAM® (building blocks and codestream)
Day 5 More on advanced physics, setting cases from scratch, personal cases setup, wrap-up session

 

Note. The course last 5 days, which we think is the minimum time needed to introduce all the concepts of OpenFOAM® as a general CFD and multiphysics solver, and the CAD/Meshing/Visualization tools.

 

Short description: this training is aimed to those with little or no experience in the use of OpenFOAM®, or those who want to improve their skills using OpenFOAM® as a general-purpose CFD and Multiphysics solver, as well as other meshing and post-processing open-source tools. During the lectures, the attendees will be introduced to all aspects of OpenFOAM® as a general-purpose CFD solver, from structure and organization of the library, to setting cases, to assessing the convergence, to basic programming. Additionally, a few sessions will be dedicated to solid modeling, mesh generation, and visualization using open-source tools. During this training, we also cover the following advanced physics topics; turbulence modeling, multiphase flows, heat transfer, moving bodies, and source terms. Hands-on sessions will be organized, where the participants will have the opportunity to solve predefined cases (or their own cases) with the assistance and guidance of the course trainers. To help the learning process, a short introduction to the finite volume method will also be provided.

Prerequisites: no prior knowledge of OpenFOAM®,  C++ or Linux is required. However, a basic knowledge of Linux is beneficial. A basic knowledge in CFD is also desirable.

Location:

DICCA. University of Genova
Via Montallegro 1, 16145.

Additional information:

The fee includes the printed material (high quality color), an USB key with the supporting material, and lunch and refreshments.

Cancellations two weeks before the course will not be accepted due to logistic reasons. It is the choice of the costumer to send a substitute.

Attendees are not required to bring their own laptop since workstations with pre-installed software will be available.

For industry participants, time limited free training support* is included in the fee (15 days).

The last day is dedicated at setting cases from scratch, so bring along your cases and we will do our best to help you run your cases.
