Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Zagreb, Croatia, announces the Seventh edition of the School on Modelling of Coupled Problems in Applied Physics with OpenFOAM (NUMAP-FOAM) for graduate students and young researchers in Zagreb in February and March 2014. The Programme Chairs are Professor Zdravko Terze and Professor Hrvoje Jasak.


The School aims to provide tuition at expert level for a small and group of students and researchers in academia and industry. The idea of the NUMAP-FOAM School is to expand the physical modelling knowledge, numerics and programming skills of attendees using OpenFOAM in their research through direct supervision and one-to-one project work. Lectures on chosen topics of mathematical and numerical modelling pertinent to coupled problems in engineering and applied physics will be delivered in addition. For further references, please contact the organisers or one of 80 alumni of previous editions of the School.

To ensure quality of work and individual supervision, the number of places is strictly limited.

Place and Time

The Winter 2014 edition NUMAP-FOAM shall take place between Monday 24 February 2014 and Friday 7 March 2014, inclusive (10 working days). The School shall be held at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Zagreb, Ivana Lucica 5, Zagreb, Croatia.

The Summer School will run over 10 working days working under supervision of Professor Hrvoje Jasak, with the assistance of his colleagues.

Topic Areas

Students are free to propose their own topics for the School. Preference shall be given to project which required complex programming tasks in OpenFOAM and advanced C++ and software engineering and implementation of complex and coupled physical models in OpenFOAM.

How to Apply: NUMAP-FOAM Winter School 2014

To apply, please write a one-page description of the project you wish to work on, with current problems and goals to be achieved at the School. Application is open to all students on graduate University courses, as well as young researchers in companies and government organisations with sufficient prior OpenFOAM knowledge.

Please note this is NOT an introductory OpenFOAM course: significant understanding of the project and software is a pre-requisite for application.

Deadline for application is 1 January 2014.

Accommodation and Costs

Attendees to the School should plan to cover their travel and accommodation expenses, ideally bringing a laptop computer with them. A registration fee for the School is EUR 1650 per attendee.

Contact Details
