The 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.

The course is organized by Dr. Silvania Lopes, research engineer and Dr. Lilla Koloszar, research expert at the von Karman Institute. Part of lectures will be given by von Karman Institute PhD candidates.
