Course Description

This course is designed for a complete beginner to OpenFOAM or even Linux. We can guarantee you that by the end of this course, you will be very much familiar with the Linux environment, OpenFOAM structures, setting up cases, meshing using snappy hex mesh, running in parallel, post-processing with ParaView, and running any medium to advance level CFD problems using OpenFOAM. All your assignments and quizzes will be carefully evaluated by the instructors and adequate feedback will be given for improvement.  

    Meet the Instructors

    Dr. Baris Bicer

    Dr. Baris is the main instructor of the OpenFOAM course. He did two master’s degrees, MEng in Naval Architecture and Machinery Engineering from İTÜ TURKEY and Msc from Kobe University, Japan. He did his Ph.D. focusing on Multiphase flows using OpenFOAM from Kobe University, Japan. He got more than 10 years of Industrial experience in multiple domains like aerodynamics, multiphase  flows etc. He is also the Founder of Turkish OpenFOAM User’s Group

    Dr. Sandeep Mouvanal

    Dr. Sandeep is the course coordinator/director and also the founder of Flowthermolab. He did his master’s and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Madras specializing in computational fluid dynamics applied to heat transfer and multiphase flows. He has over 15 years of industrial experience in the field of CFD in various domains like electronic cooling, turbomachines, engine systems etc. 

    Key information:

    • Solve CFD problems using OpenFOAM for your Ms and Ph.D. thesis and also for any industrial problems.
    • To be competent in this highly demanding CFD job market and academia 
    • Engineering students pursuing BTech, Mtech or Ph.D. for their academic projects and to enhance their skills
    • CFD Engineers already working in the industry but want to learn and master a new meshing tool
    • Any fluid dynamics/aerodynamics enthusiasts
    • Professors/Lecturers who want to teach or guide their students in CFD projects
    • CAD or FEA Engineers who want to up-skill and shift their career to CFD
    • Do I get a certificate?
      Yes, when you finish all the lessons and the corresponding quizzes/assignments you will gain the course completion certificate with the date of completion.
    • Do I need a powerful workstation/computer to learn this course?
      No, a normal laptop with 4 or 8GB RAM and a decent processor (i3) is good enough for this course.
    • What if I don’t understand some portion or need to clarify some doubts?
      We will support you through emails and zoom meetings/discussion sessions to clear all doubts and questions
    • Should I know the programming of any other CFD software to learn this course? 
      No, you don’t need.
    • Is there any prerequisite? 
      The basic knowledge in fluid mechanics and CFD is required to learn OpenFOAM. If you feel you need to refresh the basics of CFD, you can enroll in our CFD foundation course and if you buy it along with OpenFOAM you will get direct 50% off. 
    • I don’t have a Linux machine, but windows, can I use it to learn OpenFOAM?

      yes, we will teach you how to install the required software to run OpenFOAM in Windows.

    The OpenFOAM for Beginners course was a well-prepared, inclusive and instructive course.

    I started learning OpenFOAM by taking this course during my master's thesis preparation process and I made a very good progress. I would definitely recommend it to those who want to learn OpenFOAM from scratch. I think it would be useful to determine a project topic at the beginning of the course and try to further the project during the course.

    A great course for beginners!

    OpenFOAM for beginners is a very good course, as this course has given me insights not only in just OpenFOAM, but also to linux environment. The course was well made with different examples involving different flow physics.

    This gives the confidence to work on open sourcing. Very detailed planned course.

    This is very good course to understand the combination of physics and coding for real problems. The most important thing in this course is to learn the Linux on which most of the HPC or clusters are working nowadays. Very detailed elaboration makes it very easy to grasp the concepts. Direct sessions and its discussion forum helps when we got stuck at any assignment, concept or lecture.

    One of the most Wholesome course on OpenFOAM

    I started OpenFOAM, course back in January, and it has been an entirely fun ride, where I got to learn a lot new about Opensource CFD. As a pre-Final year student, the usual conceptual gap associated with certain cases gets resolved with the very active Forum. The course has not just given me raw knowledge but a major change in the way I think and solve certain problems.

    Good step by step approach how to learn and use Ubuntu, OpenFoam with plenty examples

    Great course, clear instructions, good examples. Feedback and interaction with the lecturers is a great opportunity and a real benefit compared to other e-learning courses. An improvement would be to show not only the ESRI version however to include as well the version. Another improvement would be to provide a handout which can be used by the students later. Star rating 4.5

    One of the best course to learn OpenFOAM

    Thank you for this course. I get some experience and knowledge in using ubuntu but this helps me to understand different ways to use Linux which are useful and effective. This is one of the best courses available in the online format to learn OpenFOAM. This was very immersive and interesting for me with a lot of self-learning to be done with simulation and theory. thanks
