Wolf Dynamics - Costomer-driven flow solutions

OpenFOAM® Introductory Training

Wolf Dynamics offers this introductory OpenFOAM® training course in cooperation with the University of Genova on a regular basis. The training course is aimed to those with little or no experience in the use of OpenFOAM®, or for those who want to improve their skills using OpenFOAM®.

During the lectures, the attendees are introduced to all aspects of OpenFOAM® as a general-purpose CFD and Multiphysics solver, from structure and organization of the library, to running cases, to programming.

Hands-on sessions are organized, where the participants have the opportunity to solve pre-defined cases (or their own cases) with the assistance and guidance of the course trainers.

Additionally, a few sessions are dedicated to geometry generation, mesh generation, and visualization by using Open Source tools. To help the learning process, a short introduction to the finite volume method, basic Linux OS commands and the C++ programming language are also provided.

The training course last 5 days, which we think is the minimum time needed to introduce all the concepts of OpenFOAM®, and the CAD/Meshing/Visualization tools.

The next edition of the OpenFOAM® Introductory Course is scheduled for February 2015, 16th to 20th. Read more on the event specific page.
