Course Overview

It is a balanced course for a beginner in the CFD field. 
The course is designed in such a way that it will give a 
comprehensive introduction to the open source CFD toolbox 
OpenFOAM® (Open Field Operation and Manipulation). The 
important prospect of this course, it allows the 
participant to build up their understanding in all the 
aspect to OpenFOAM as a general-purpose CFD solver. The key 
objectives of the course are: 
During the lectures, the attendees will be introduced to 
the structure and organization of OpenFOAM in detail.
More than half-time will be devoted to Hands-on sessions. 
Where participants will have the opportunity to solve pre-
defined fundamental test cases, like Potential flow, Simple 
fluid flows, Heat Transfer including natural convection, 
Turbulent Flows (RANS modeling), Moving frame of reference 
(MRF), Dynamic Mesh Movements (sliding mesh)
Code development aspect allows the participant to walk 
through various pre-defined solvers (icoFOAM, simpleFOAM, 
pisoFOAM, interFoam), boundary conditions, utilities, and 
libraries. Hands-on experience provides the platform to the 
participant for implementing various boundary conditions, 
incorporating scalar transport in the existing solvers and 
library development for new physics.
