Introductory Course to OpenFoamThe 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.

During the coffee breaks and lunch breaks the participants will have the chance to meet each other and the instructors and discuss their interest regarding CFD.
