  • Discussion of basic commands and utilities
  • Overview of the OpenFOAM library
  • Review of the finite volume method
  • Discretization and linear solver set up guide
  • 4 hands-on examples
  • Best practices for case set up

Note: Training includes snacks and lunch. This training is suitable for Caelus users.

Advanced OpenFOAM® Training

This class is suitable for those with user level experience using OpenFOAM®. Participants in the course will learn the layout of the OpenFOAM® library, how to copy and compile a solver. In addition, introduction to C++ programming language, creation of the new turbulence model as a part of the existing OpenFOAM® library with curvature correction. Lastly, the ability to read the OpenFOAM® library without fear, removing the FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) that grips most new users. The methodology employed consists of a series of lectures that provide a general understanding of OpenFOAM® topics followed by hands-on work. This training focuses on the OpenFOAM® Foundation version of OpenFOAM® but can be applied to other forks. Participants will be able to customise top level solvers in OpenFOAM® after this training course. This training course includes:

  • C++ introduction
  • OpenFOAM library layout
  • Compilation of OpenFOAM solvers and utilities
  • C++ classes and inheritance
  • Creating a new turbulence model
  • Boundary condition code walk through
  • Hand-on examples

Note: Training includes snacks and lunch. This training is suitable for Caelus users.

Will I be bored, I am an advanced user?

Our classes cover beginner 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 own processes.

We also offer an advanced OpenFOAM® 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 dates.

Course locations?

OpenFOAM courses are delivered at various venues. Pointwise course are delivered at our premises.

Cancellation Policy

You must cancel a confirmed training reservation no later than seven calendar days prior to the start of the course. If you cancel after that time or fail to attend, your credit card will be charged the standard fee.
