Prerequisites: intermediate knowledge of CFD, OpenFOAM, and Linux is required. Some basic knowledge of C++ and shell scripting is beneficial. For those following the optimization training, no prior knowledge of Dakota is required.

Time-zone: Central European Time (CET).

Course times:  to maximize users participation in different time-zones, the courses will start at 2:00 pm CET and will end at 5:30 pm CET. Each training session will be split into three non-consecutive days. Two days dedicated to lectures and guided tutorials, and one additional day devoted to a general review and Q&A. A 20 minutes break is included in every session.

Language: English

Number of seats: minimum 2 seats - maximum 15 seats.

Training material:  every participant will have access to the lecture notes (in pdf format) and all the supporting material (tutorials and videos).

Teaching method:  lectures and hands-on sessions to validate the acquired knowledge.

Additional information:

Cancellations will not be accepted.

The course is delivered live. However, all sessions will be recorded.

Attendees are required to have all applications installed.

To maximize the learning process, it is recommended to use two devices. One device to run all tutorials and the other device to follow the online meeting.

Before starting the course and to ease the learning experience, all participants will get access to short pre-recorded lectures introducing the course and addressing key topics.

To deliver the training, we will use Zoom online conferencing applications, which is free on the client side.

A training certificate is provided to all attendees who complete the course.

Support to install the required applications can be provided at a nominal price. Send us an email for more information.

We reserve the right to cancel a course if the minimum forum is not reached or due to undisclosed issues.  In such a case, the registered participants will be notified ten days before the starting date and refunded 100%.
