Event description

Description

OpenFOAM® training designed to enable CFD users to start using OpenFOAM for practical computations. The course consists of a series of lectures that provide a general understanding of OpenFOAM topics followed by hands-on work. Along with the hands-on examples that show “how”, the lectures include discussion of “why” to enable participants to independently use OpenFOAM in their daily work. No knowledge of the OpenFOAM library is assumed. Basic Linux commands and their relationship to hands-on examples are covered.

The final day consists of the Master Class series of lectures which will arm users with the knowledge to navigate the OpenFOAM library without fear and serve as an entry point into OpenFOAM development.

Note: To better accommodate users in the heart of Canada's energy sector, the hands-on examples will have a focus on multiphase flow applications.

A hard copy of the training notes will be provided together with a USB stick with a working copy of OpenFOAM and files from the course. For hands-on examples, attendees are required to bring their own laptop (PC). If attendees cannot bring their own laptop indicate so in the registration notes as one can be provided.

The course will be instructured by Dr. Chris Sideroff, principal researcher at Applied CCM, Inc. Applied CCM, Inc was founded in 2015 by Chris to provide support, development and training for new and existing users to the field of computational continuum mechanics.

FAQs

What are the hours?

Our classes usually run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. We ask trainees to arrive between 8:30-9:00 a.m. so we can get everyone registered the first day. Coffee, tea and snacks are provided so many people spend this time eating and getting to know the other trainees.

The classes can end early on one or more days, depending on class discussion and additional problems trainees may have questions about. Whenever we do finish early, we use that time to work with trainees on applications and questions they bring to class. We are happy to provide personalized advice for your own cases and find this helps cement what is learned in class.

I am an advanced user. Will I be bored?

Our classes cover beginning to advanced topics with instruction tailored to the experience level of the class. Advanced users typically find the review of the basics in the class beneficial and pick up time-saving techniques they didn’t know before, while learning how to incorporate more advanced capabilities into their processes.

If more in depth instruction on development beyond the Master Class lectures is desired, we also offer a more comprehensive development course that deals with such topics as advanced C++ features, OpenFOAM library architecture, pressure-velocity coupling, writing a new solver, writing a new turbulence model and writing a new boundary condition. Contact us for more information and possible dates.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
