Running OpenFOAM Participants undertake exercises in simulating cases and programming in OpenFOAM using ESI’s Cloud-based HPC computing platform, accessed via a secure ssh connection between desktop PCs (provided) or participants laptops, applicable to all operating systems. All work from the training will be stored on the cloud and participants may download all the work and exercises on their USB flash drives at the end of the training. Course materials A high-quality, A5-sized (80-100 page) wire-bound manual is provided with each course that participants can use during the course and can later work through in their own time. Language The language used in all OpenFOAM courses is English. Translations or delivery in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages are available on request. Course times The course is 2 days in duration and usually runs from 09.00 to 17.30 (local time) each day. Target audience This course is for those users with a broad basic knowledge of OpenFOAM, either from the Foundation Course or through general experience, who wish to develop their skills for more advanced CFD and OpenFOAM programming — see “information on course suitability” for further details. Prerequisites This course follows on from the Foundation Course in OpenFOAM, which introduces the use of OpenFOAM, Linux, C++ programming, the finite volume method, etc. We recommend users undertake the OpenFOAM Foundation Course prior to this course, but it is not essential for more experienced OpenFOAM users.
