Basic Course on Computational Fluid Dynamics using OpenFOAM

3 days, 7 hours per day, Classroom Training/Virtual Live Class

What will I study?

This is a basic course on Computational Fluid Dynamics using OpenFOAM. OpenFOAM is the open source CFD software that is widely used for analysing fluid flow, heat transfer, mass transfer and chemical reactions related physical phenomena. This basic course on CFD will provide a solid background for the participant to apply CFD methods for design and analysis in engineering applications of incompressible flow, heat transfer and rotating machinery related problems.
