Welcome on the registration website of the OpenFoam course organized by the Delft Centre for Computational Science and Engineering.

On November 23, 2011 an introductory course in the use of OpenFOAM for computational fluid dynamics analysis will be given at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of Delft University of Technology, in Delft.
The course, which is different from the two courses taught before, will cover all the steps involved in computational fluid dynamics analysis using Open Source algorithms: geometry modeling, mesh generation, the actual computation and visualization for some basic applications. Additionally, you will learn how to define a simple multi-physics model in OpenFOAM. The course will almost entirely consist of hands-on Lab sessions, with only a brief introduction to the theoretical background of OpenFOAM. The learning objectives of the course are listed below.

For this course there is no registration fee.
The course is organized in the framework of the Dutch OpenFOAM user group (DOUG), by members of the Numerical Analysis group of the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) and the Aerodynamics group of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of Delft University of Technology.


  • Basics of OF discretisation and solution procedure
  • Geometry modeling with SALOME
  • Mesh generation with SALOME and conversion of
    meshes to the OpenFOAM format
  • Mesh generation with SnappyHexMesh
  • OF application for incompressible flow
  • OF application for multiphase flow
  • Building your own multi-physics model
  • Visualize computed results using ParaView

Learning objectives:
After completion of the course you will know how to:

  • Generate basic to moderate geometric models in SALOME
  • Generate an unstructured grid for viscous flow computations using the SALOME grid generator and the
    OpenFOAM tool SnappyHexMesh
  • Simulate time-dependent turbulent incompressible flow
  • Simulate time-dependent incompressible immiscible two-phase flow
  • Build a simple simulation model starting from a system of partial differential equations
  • Visualize your results using ParaView

What do you get:

  • A step by step tutorial
  • A cd-rom with OpenFOAM and SALOME
