User OpenFOAM course is suitable to all those who are new to OpenFOAM, have no experience in this area whatsoever, but it may be also of interesting for those who have already experienced OpenFOAM in the past and want to improve their skills. In two days, divided into four thematic sections, the trainee receives an overview of the possibilities of OpenFOAM. They learn to run different types of CFD simulations, set the boundary conditions and parameters for calculations, prepare computational meshes and evaluate results.

Advanced level OpenFOAM training course is suitable for participants of User training and also for those who already have a solid OpenFOAM user experience and want to continue and develop their special skills even further. The two-day advanced training is also spread into four thematic blocks. You will look at the source code and gradually implement and test advanced techniques for preprocessing, postprocessing, editing solvers, boundary conditions and turbulence models.

User OpenFOAM training in points: - what is OpenFOAM, phylosophy and its structure - basic orientation in Linux/UNIX environment - basic grid generation - blockMesh - case setup - initial and boundary conditions - parallel computing - results evaluation using OpenFOAM and ParaView - advanced grid generation - snappyHexMesh - boundary conditions and solvers in OpenFOAM (overwiev) - turbulence modeling - external aerodynamics of car - modeling of rotation, moving meshes, multiphase flows - advanced postprocessing, monitoring of convergence

Advanced OpenFOAM training in points: - orientation in the source code of OpenFOAM - implementation of the new OpenFOAM solver - illustration of mesh refinement - implementation of utilities for preproc./postprocessing - multiphysics: flows with heat transfer and conduction - coupling of different mesh types - multi-region case - implementation of the new boundary conduction - creating and tuning of turbulence models - advanced external aerodynamics of car - specialized functions in ParaView - postprocessing in GnuPlot (2D graphs of selected alues) - command line scripting (bash)
