Dear All,

After a few years of procrastination, I have finally managed to produce a self-taught course on learning OpenFOAM (https://www.researchgate.net/publica...ds-on_training). This course material is intended for beginners with no previous experience of using OpenFOAM. Existing users can also benefit by broadening their knowledge. In this course we use OpenFOAM Foundation release (version 6) and cover various topics including:

Introduction
  • Basics of OpenFOAM.
  • Various OpenFOAM forks available.
  • Advantages of using OpenFOAM.
  • Plenty of reference material available on the internet.

OpenFOAM code
  • Understanding the OpenFOAM code structure.
  • Use of environment variables and aliases in OpenFOAM.
  • Getting familiarised with OpenFOAM applications and utilities.

OpenFOAM simulations
  • Understanding the tutorial directory structure.
  • Meshing support in OpenFOAM.
  • Problem setup including initial and boundary conditions.
  • Understanding OpenFOAM solver input and time control files.
  • Post-processing with ParaView.

Programming with OpenFOAM
  • Basics of OpenFOAM programming.
  • Introduction to OpenFOAM classes.
  • Concepts of dimensional compatibility and equation mimicking.
  • Overview of various mathematical operations available.
  • Obtaining mesh related information in OpenFOAM.
  • Compilation of an OpenFOAM code.

Hands-on tutorials
  • Meshing with blockMesh and snappyHexMesh.
  • Understanding OpenFOAM error messages.
  • Effective use of linux commands including the search of relevant information.
  • Use of various useful OpenFOAM utilities.
  • Understanding the basics of parallel computing in OpenFOAM.
  • Effective utilisation of computational resources for parallel computing.
  • Selection of an OpenFOAM solver for a given problem.
I hope that this material would be useful for people starting to learn OpenFOAM. Feel free to drop me a message if you find any bugs, I will try to incorporate them in an updated version.

Note:
This offering is not approved or endorsed by OpenCFD Limited, producer and distributor of the OpenFOAM software and owner of the OPENFOAM® and OpenCFD® trade marks.

Is there a video that goes along with these slides that we can view? Would very much enjoy watching the lecture?
