Put your own physics in your CFD solution with FINE™/Open & OpenLabs

Posted By: NUMECA International
Date:Tue, 20 Sep 2011, 12:32 p.m.

Applied CFD course and workshop in collaboration with the Von Karman Institute 17th-20th of October 2011, Brussels. Opening speech & introduction by Prof. Ch. Hirsch

The Von Karman Institute and NUMECA International are pleased to announce the CFD course which will take place on 17th-20th October 2011 at the Von Karman Institute. Engineers, graduates and researchers, interested in CFD applications are invited to participate. The 3-day course and 1-day workshop is intended to guide participants through the whole CFD cycle (pre-processing, calculation, post-processing) of hand-on problems, providing them technical details at each stage.

NUMECA's CFD suite, FINE™/Open, suitable for both internal and external flow applications, will be used during the course. FINE™/Open, packaged now with the OpenLabs module with user-defined functionalities will be used for physical modeling customization.

Participants will benefit from:

* Learning about best practice in specific computational problems

* Sharing experience by specialists in NUMECA’s software

* Physical modeling customization of cases

* Comprehensive discussions on the results obtained

Professor Ch. Hirsch will give an opening speech and introduction to CFD

All attendees are invited to attend this on the morning of Monday 17th

Training Program

From 17th-20th 2011, NUMECA International will organize a special classroom course and workshop in collaboration with the Von Karman Institute. The schedule will be as follows:


Monday, 17th October 2011: Introduction to mesh generation, including practice sessions, using the HEXPRESS™ Unstructured -Full Hex- non conformal body fitted grid generator for arbitrary geometries.

Introduction to FINE™/Open flow solver set-up and post processing. FINE™/Open is a Flow Integrated Environment dedicated to the simulation of complex internal and external applications.

Tuesday, 18th October 2011: Flow solver set-up and post-processing using FINE™/Open. Theoretical aspects (turbulence, multi-grid strategy, preconditioning).

Wednesday 19th October 2011: Customization of physical models using the new module OpenLabs, which allows physical modeling customization i.e add and/or modify physical models in a highly user friendly way.


Thursday 20th of October 2011: Participants are invited to bring their own cases for discussion and practice. For the workshop, you can bring your geometry data in Parasolid, STL or CATIA V5 format. Please send your case at registration, if possible, to allow us to cross-check the input data and make sure you gain maximum benefit from the workshop.


The maximum number of participants is limited. Participants will receive an electronic copy of the lecture notes, as well as a certificate of attendance. A trial license (one month) of NUMECA software will also be provided to participants. To register, or for more details, please contact[tt_news]=100&tx_ttnews[backPid]=223&cHash=ce78052b03
