Curso de OpenFOAM: introducción a la dinámica de fluidos computacional (2ª edición)
CloudPYME project organises, on may 26-28, the “Introductory Course to computational fluid dynamics with OpenFOAM®”, a free computational library oriented to numerical modelling of multi-physics problems.
Nowadays, aiming product optimisation and minimisation of resources employed, any design activity within a project should be assisted by modelling tools. In the market there are countless modelling software, able to simulate extremely complex processes. The dissemination of these programs by the industry faces two major difficulties, the cost of the commercial software licences and/or the nonexistence of human resources with adequate skills.
The limitations in terms of cost, can be surpassed through the utilisation of open-source software. In the past this branch of codes presented very specific/limited capabilities, and were developed by very small researcher teams. Nowadays, the communities that work in open-source codes were substantially enlarged and better organised. As a consequence, some of this codes, compared with the commercial ones, in some cases present improved capabilities, and, given the large range of skill covered by the development teams, covers a much wider range of applications. One example is the computational library OpenFOAM®, that is able to simulate the behaviour of extremely complex multi-physic systems, covering both fluid and solid behaviour, being also able to perform parallel computations. One of the main advantages of OpenFOAM® is his programmability/adaptability, resorting to a symbolic programming language, that allows developing new applications for resolution of specific problems.
Based on the above, the subsisting main barrier to the employment of numerical codes is the lack of knowledge, that is additionally hindered by the scarcity of organised documentation, common to the generality of open-source modelling programs. This limitation can be surpassed through knowledge transfer from experienced users to the potential ones. This aim is the main motivation of this training action, allocated to industry professionals with interest in numerical modelling.
