Numerical Modelling of Coupled Problems in Applied Physics with OpenFOAM

(NUMAP-FOAM) Summer School 2012 at the University of Zagreb, Croatia

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Zagreb, Croatia, announces the Fifth edition of the Summer School on Modelling of Coupled Problems in Applied Physics with OpenFOAM (NUMAP-FOAM) for graduate students and young researchers in Zagreb in August and September 2012. The Programme Chairs are Professor Zdravko Terze and Professor Hrvoje Jasak.


The Summer School shall concentrate on providing tuition for a small and selected group of students and researchers in academia and industry. The idea of the Summer School is to expand the physical modelling knowledge, numerics and programming skills of attendees using OpenFOAM in their research through direct supervision and one-to-one work. Lectures on chosen topics of mathematical and numerical modelling pertinent to coupled problems in engineering and applied physics will be delivered in addition. For further references, please contact the organisers or one of 55 alumni of previous four editions of the Summer School.

To ensure quality of work and individual supervision, the number of places is strictly limited.

Place and Time

The Summer School will run over 11 working days working under supervision of Professor Hrvoje Jasak, with the assistance of doc. dr. Zeljko Tukovic and dr. Henrik Rusche. Tutorials, lectures and group work will run from Wednesday 29 August and Wednesday 12 September 2012 at the Laboratory of Flight Vehicle Dynamics and Structural Systems, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Zagreb, Ivana Lucica 5, Zagreb, Croatia.

How to Apply: NUMAP-FOAM Summer School 2012

To apply, please write a one-page description of the project you wish to work on, with current problems and goals to be achieved at the Summer School. Application is open to all students on graduate University courses, as well as young researchers in companies and government organisations with sufficient OpenFOAM knowledge.

Please note this is NOT an introductory OpenFOAM course: significant understanding of the project and software is a pre-requisite for application.

Deadline for application is 1 May 2012. Successful candidates will be informed within three weeks of closing.

Accommodation and Costs

Attendees to the Summer School should plan to cover their travel and accommodation expenses, ideally bringing a laptop computer with them. A registration fee for the Summer School is EUR 1000 per attendee.
