Summer School on Numerical Modelling and OpenFOAM 2008
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FSB), University of Zagreb, Croatia announce the Summer School for PhD students and young researchers in Zagreb, taking place on 8-19 September 2008.
Date: September 8, 2008 - September 19, 2008
Location: Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia
Web Page:
Contact Email:
Organizer: University of Zagreb, Croatia and Wikki Ltd.
Special Fields: Finite Volume Methods
Softwares: OpenFOAM
Deadlines: June 1, 2008 (abstract), June 1, 2008 (registration)
Type of Event: Course, International

The idea of a Summer School is to gather 5-10 students and
OpenFOAM users each with their own project at the University
of Zagreb, where they would work under supervision and help
on numerical modelling, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
and in particular OpenFOAM.  The Summer School would be led
by Professor Hrvoje Jasak, original OpenFOAM developer, with
the assistance of local OpenFOAM experts.

The Summer school is scheduled to take 10 working days.
During the two weeks, the students would work on their
project, exchange experiences with colleagues and have full
access to supervisors with detailed knowledge of numerical
methods and OpenFOAM software.

If sufficient interest is shown, lectures on numerical
modelling, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Object-Oriented
Programming and C++ or various aspects of physical modelling
will also be offered.  Detailed lecture content and
timetable will be decided in consultation with supervisors
of attending students and attendees themselves.

To ensure quality work and supervision, the number of places
is limited.  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.  Applications
are open to all students on MSc and PhD University courses,
as well as young researchers in commercial companies with
OpenFOAM experience.  Please not this is NOT an introductory
OpenFOAM course: significant understanding of the project
and software is a pre-requisite for application.

All applications will be reviewed by Organising Committee
and successful applicants will be informed within 10 days of
closure.  Deadline for applications is 1 June 2008.  Please
direct all correspondence to

This event is sponsored by Wikki Ltd. and we are looking for
further sponsors.  Due to limited financial resources,
attendees are expected to cover their own travel and
accommodation expenses, ideally bringing a laptop computer
with them.  Preferential rates and student accommodation are
currently being negotiated.
