Greetings OpenFOAMer's End
Greetings OpenFOAMer's

End of March is quickly approaching, which is the "official" deadline for submitting abstracts for the Third OpenFOAM Workshop which is being held in Milan this summer.

I will organize a session on Multiphase and Free-Surface Flows. Abstracts are being solicited from the OpenFOAM community on the following topics:
-Free Surface Flows: e.g., ship hydrodynamics, river hydraulics, and coastal and off-shore applications,
-Cavitation: e.g., modeling of all aspects of cavitation ranging from bubble-dynamics of inception to sheet/cloud/vortex cavitation to cavitation damage and erosion.
-Fundamental Algorithms: e.g., development of Level-Set and VOF algorithms, phase-change models, homogenous multiphase vs. multi-fluid models
-Other: If you have work in this area that doesn't fit the above catagories, please submit an abstract! We are grateful for your suggestions!

In addition to an overview of existing OpenFOAM capability and technical presentations on the above topcis, a tutorial is currently being prepared on how to couple interFoam-class solvers with wave-boundary-conditions, and dynamic mesh and 6DOF solvers for simulation of floating bodies in waves.

Please visit the Workshop website at I look forward to receiving abstracts on these topics, and to meeting more OpenFOAM users and developers at the workshop this summer!
