Numerical Modelling of Coupled Problems in Applied Physics with OpenFOAM (NUMAP-FOAM)

Summer School 2023 at the University of Cambridge, UK

Following the COVID-induced break, The Centre for Scientific Computing, at the Department of Physics, The Cavendish Laboratory, announces the 15th edition of the Summer School on Modelling of Coupled Problems in Applied Physics with OpenFOAM (NUMAP-FOAM) for graduate students and young researchers in Cambridge in September 2023. The Program Chair is Professor Hrvoje Jasak. This is the second edition of NUMAP-FOAM to be held in Cambridge.


The School aims to provide tuition at expert level for a small and selected 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 more than 165 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 Maxwell Building at the Cavendish Laboratory, West Cambridge

The Summer 2023 edition NUMAP-FOAM shall take place between Monday, 4 September 2023 and Friday, 15 September 2023, inclusive (10 working days). The School shall be held at the The Cavendish Laboratory, Department of Physics, (Maxwell Building), University of Cambridge, UK.

Topic Areas

Students are invited to propose their own topics for the School. Preference shall be given to project which require complex programming in OpenFOAM, advanced software design and implementation of complex and coupled physical models in OpenFOAM. Special topics for this year's Summer School include multi-phase and free surface flows, exa-scale applications of high performance computing including implicit linear algebra, Reduced Order Modelling, Ccmbustion modelling and electro-chemistry in CFD.

How to Apply: NUMAP-FOAM Summer School 2023

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 researchers in companies and government organisations with sufficient knowledge of OpenFOAM.

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 15 May 2023. Successful candidates will be informed within two weeks of closing.

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 GBP 2000 per attendee. It is recommended to look for accommodation at one of many Cambridge Colleges.
