Numerical Modelling of Coupled Problems in Applied Physics with OpenFOAM

Summer School 2024, University of Cambridge, UK

The Centre for Scientific Computing, at the Department of Physics, The Cavendish Laboratory, announces the 17th 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 2024. The Program Chairs are Professor Hrvoje Jasak (University of Cambridge, UK) and doc.dr. Tessa Uroic (University of Zagreb, Croatia).


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 180 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, University of Cambridge, UK

The 17th edition NUMAP-FOAM shall take place between Monday, 2 September 2024 and Friday, 13 September 2024, 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 naval hydrodynamics CFD, multi-phase and free surface flows, exa-scale applications of implicit linear algebra, GPU for unstructured CFD, magneto-hydrodynamic applications and electro-chemistry in CFD.

How to Apply: NUMAP-FOAM Summer School 2024

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 2024. 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.
