The on-site course gives a practical introduction to the structure and usability of OpenFoam and OpenFOAM related applications (snappyHexMesh, paraview). Besides the general introduction the participants will perform a complete numerical simulation starting from choosing the solver till post-processing.

The second day will be partially dedicated to the open source mesh generator snappyHexMesh and a multiphase simulation will be performed with the obtained mesh.
