Organizer: CFD Support s.r.o.
Softwares: OpenFOAM
Type of Event: Course, International

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.
