Starting point for OpenFOAM
Join Date: Jan 2014

I am a beginner in OpenFOAM. I just went through tutorials in user guide. But in order to learn and dive in more, how should I manage ?
I am just trying to open varios tutorial cases, open the folder contents and try to understand. But is there any other systematic approach with which we can learn it in a proper manner?
I mean, when I started learning FLUENT or CFX, there were properly placed documentation to learn various cases. But in OpenFOAM apart from 3 cases, there is no discussion. So where can I find it in a proper manner?
Till now all I felt was, "if its open source, its easy to have access and learn". But OpenFOAM is different than others!!
Please help me.
Thank You, Have a great day!

MSc/PhD course in CFD with OpenSource software, 2013
also read the courses of the previous years 2012 back to 2007 http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~hani/kurser/OS_CFD_2012
take a look at the previous Workshops as well
There are also many commercial offers (usually with a pricetag >1000€)
=>I point to a commercial course offer with a low price tag, but the teachers are experienced

1) What operating system are you running this on?
2) How familiar are you with C++?
3) What release of OpenFOAM are you running?
OpenFOAM is much more difficult than a commercial code because you have to know the proper things to type into the terminal - there are no buttons to click.
