Melbourne, Australia, July 26 & 27, 2012

This two-day course is delivered by Dr Darrin Stephens at Applied CCM Pty Ltd.


The two day introductory training in OpenFOAM is designed to enable CFD practitioners to start using OpenFOAM for practical computations. The methodology employed consists of a series of lectures that provide a general understanding of OpenFOAM topics followed by hands-on work. No knowledge of the OpenFOAM library is assumed. Rudimentary Linux commands and their relationships to hands-on examples are explained. This training focuses on the OpenFOAM Foundation version 2.1.1 of OpenFOAM.


Day 1


-Overview of Linux commands

-OpenFOAM: A library for Scientific Computing

-Mesh generation, conversion and set-up: importing Fluent meshes,

-Material properties, initial and boundary conditions, Running the solver,

-Hand-on examples.

Day 2

-Finite Volume Discretisation: theoretical base of OpenFOAM,

-Field inialisation, post-processing and field probes,

-Hands-on examples,

-Mesh generation with Pointwise,

-Turbulence models and bounday conditions,

-Using OpenFOAM in parallel.

A hard copy of the training notes will be provided together with a USB stick with a working copy of OpenFOAM and workshop files from the course. For hands-on examples, attendees will have access to desktop computers with OpenFOAM installed.
