Location: LRZ building, TUM university campus Garching/Munich, Boltzmannstr. 1, course room 2 (H.U.010)
Course Content:

Over the past years, the group of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) users has grown to one of the largest user groups on the HPC systems of LRZ. In consequence, LRZ extends the course offer in that field for students and scientists.

The OpenFOAM® Software Framework represents one of widest spread open source application software frameworks for solving partial differential equations in the fields of science and engineering. Due to strong user requests, LRZ offers for the first time since two years a five-days OpenFOAM course again.
