Weinberg, Volker Volker.Weinberg at
Do Dez 13 17:04:01 CET 2018

Dear users of LRZ,

There are still some places free for our new course about "CFD with OpenFOAM".

Date & Location:
Monday, January, 14 - Friday, January 18 2019, 9:00 - 18:00
Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, university campus Garching near Munich, Boltzmannstr. 1, course room 2 (H.U.010)

OpenFOAM® is a widely-used open-source code and a powerful framework for solving a variety of problems mainly in the field of CFD. The five-day workshop gives an introduction to OpenFOAM® applied on CFD phenomena and is intended for beginners as well as for people with CFD background knowledge. The user will learn about case setup, meshing tools like snappyHexMesh and cfMesh. Available OpenFOAM® utilities and additional libraries like swak4Foam, that can be used for pre- and postprocessing tasks, are further aspects of this course. Additionally, basic solvers and major aspects of code structure are highlighted.

Lectures and hands-on session with typical CFD examples will guide through this course including first steps in own coding.

To take full advantage of the course offering it would be advisable to have a standing knowledge of using Linux, as it is used for all exercises. Basics in programming will be required for some of the exercises as well as some insights into CFD theory.

Andreas Ruopp (HLRS), Daniel Harlacher (ZIMT, Uni. Siegen), Thorsten Zirwes (SCC, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie)

The course language is English. We will provide local systems with test accounts for the participants.
