Computational Fluid Dynamics with OpenFOAM: An Introduction (start April 02)

OpenFOAM is an open-source library for solving PDEs with wide applications in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and beyond. This seminar will introduce students to the basic concepts of computational fluid dynamics and enable students to set up flow simulations in OpenFOAM, including generating grids, setting initial/boundary conditions, running simulations, post-processing, and developing customized solvers.
