OpenSource CFD for industry – high-level development: Implementations with the OpenFOAM(R) technology and C++, Nov 2017

Posted By: Hakan Nilsson
Date:Mon, 25 Sep 2017, 11:18 p.m.

Sweden, November 16-17, 2017

The course teaches high-level development using the OpenFOAM
technology and C++.

Registration deadline 16th October!



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. The basic procedures
are shown using a projector, and time is left for the
participants to follow on their own laptop (brought by the
participant – installation instructions will be provided
before the start of the course). 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
* 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, and you will be put in a list
that will be used for further information and for future
announcements. You may at any time ask to be removed from
that list.
