We are glad to announce the first Nottingham OpenFOAM® workshop will take place at the University of Nottingham on July 22-23 2019. The guiding principle of this informal meeting is to provide an introduction to OpenFOAM® using hands-on sessions, followed by more advanced topics, and conclude with research talks of case studies performed with OpenFOAM® by selected speakers.
Room A24, Pope Building
University of Nottingham,
NG7 2RD, Nottingham
Monday 22nd July
Instructors: Mirco Magnini, Andrea Ferrari
9:30-12:30 - Introduction to OpenFoam, the finite-volume method, tutorials on heat conduction (laplacianFoam) and fluid flow simulation (icoFoam).
13:30-16:30 – Volume of Fluid method for two-phase flows with interfaces and tutorials on multiphase flow simulation (interFoam and isoAdvector).
Please come at 9:00 if you want to use your laptop and need help with the installation of the virtual machine
Tuesday 23rd July
- 9:30 – 12:30 - Research talks
Federico Municchi: Runtime C++ post-processing in OpenFOAM
Andrea Ferrari: urbanMicroClimateFOAM, an extended conjugate heat and mass transfer solver for urban climate modeling
Andrew Nicoli (G2TRC): A new OpenFOAM solver capable of modelling oil jet-breakup and subsequent film formation for bearing chamber applications
Mirco Magnini: OpenFOAM development for modelling two-phase flows and boiling in microfluidics
- 13:30 – 16:30 - Coding groups / Hackaton
Topics and working groups will be communicated on Day 1
The registration is free but mandatory. Please click here to book your place.
Desktop computers with OpenFOAM® v1812 installed will be available but participants can use their own laptop provided that they have a working version of OpenFOAM® installed.
A basic knowledge of:
- the Linux/Unix shell
- equations of continuum mechanics (conservation of mass, momentum, heat transfer)
- numerical methods (interpolation and integration schemes)
