OpenSource CFD for industry - high-level development (Implementations with the OpenFOAM technology and C++)
The course covers the OpenFOAM directory and code organization, and how to implement new applications and libraries such as solvers, turbulence models and boundary conditions. A crash-course in C++ gives a basic understanding of the code syntax and object orientation. The course is given as a hands-on workshop, in a computer lab. Time is left for the participants to follow on their own designated and pre-installed computer. The course language is English.

Description:

The present course is the second of two courses (2+2 days),
teaching high-level development using the OpenFOAM
technology and C++. It covers the directory and code
organization, and how to implement new applications and
libraries such as solvers, turbulence models and boundary
conditions. A crash-course in C++ gives a basic
understanding of the code syntax and object orientation. The
course is given as a hands-on workshop, in a computer lab.
The basic procedures are shown using a projector, and time
is left for the participants to follow on their own
designated and pre-installed computer. A part of the C++
programming language, and object orientation, may be given
in a seminar room. The course language is English.

After the course, the participant should be able to:

* Understand the OpenFOAM source code directory structure

* Understand C++ syntax and object orientation

* Read OpenFOAM code and figure out its functionality

* Find OpenFOAM implementation examples in the source code

* Implement and compile new solvers and utilities, based on
the OpenFOAM technology

* Implement and compile new libraries, based on the OpenFOAM
technology

* Use a debugger while implementing new code

* Continue learning using the installed code

The course is useful for engineers and researchers who are
interested in Computational Fluid Dynamics with OpenSource
software. It focuses on how to do high-level implementations
in OpenFOAM, and it is assumed that the participant already
has a basic knowledge of the underlying theories of CFD. It
is assumed that the participant has a very limited knowledge
in C++ and object orientation. A significant part of the
course is to learn how to continue learning, i.e. how to
learn from the installed code also after course.

If you are interested in taking the course you should send
an e-mail to hani@chalmers.se, and you will be put in a list
that will be used for further information until the course
starts, and for future announcements. You may at any time
ask to be removed from that list. The formal registration is
done through Chalmers Professional Education
(http://www.chalmersprofessional.se/en).
