Improving OpenFOAM Usability

Our training is not just updated for OpenFOAM v4, but actually informed the development of OpenFOAM v4.  How?  OpenFOAM v4 offers improved usability through developments contributed by Henry Weller (OpenFOAM Architect) and Chris Greenshields (OpenFOAM Manager and Trainer) at CFD Direct.  The following features were added so our course participants spend less time struggling with quirks of the software, leaving more time to build and practice their CFD skills.

Developing CFD Experience and Competence

The training involves learning through experience. We present participants with representative cases, many of which were added to OpenFOAM v3 and v4, spanning a range of scientific disciplines and industries, e.g. external aerodynamics of a car, wind flow around buildings, static mixer, nozzle jet, cyclone, water channel, exhaust system, propeller, etc. We teach design of CFD solutions, starting with a prototype case that is then enhanced in small, digestible steps with periods of reflection to reinforce new concepts.  We build competence in CFD with OpenFOAM, giving participants the confidence to repeatedly carry out CFD analysis to a defined standard.

  • Confidence = not freezing at the keyboard.
  • Repeatedly = delivering a good solution, and another…
  • Defined standard = understand what a good solution is and delivering solutions in a timely manner.

The training addresses the challenges of CFD analysis through a modular curriculum that builds competence across the core components of CFD: fluid dynamics/physical modelling; geometry and meshing; numerical methods; data analysis; and, computing. The training is flexible, but we don’t mistake “flexibility” for “training without structure that misses key competencies.”
