OpenFOAM Summer School 2008 at the University of Zagreb

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture

Zagreb, Croatia; 8-19 September 2008

Big splash with OpenFOAM

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FSB), University of Zagreb, Croatia announces the Summer School for PhD students and young researchers in Zagreb.

The idea of a Summer School is to gather 5-10 students and OpenFOAM users, each with their own project at the University of Zagreb, where they would work under supervision and help on numerical modelling, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and in particular OpenFOAM.

The Summer School will be led by Professor Hrvoje Jasak, original OpenFOAM developer, with the assistance of local OpenFOAM experts.

Attendance and Organisation

The Summer school would be scheduled to take 10 working days. During the two weeks, the students would work on their project, exchange experiences with colleagues and have full access to supervisors with detailed knowledge of numerical methods and OpenFOAM software.

If sufficient interest is shown, lectures on numerical modelling, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Object-Oriented Programming and C++ or various aspects of physical modelling will also be offered. Detailed lecture content and timetable will be decided in consultation with supervisors of attending students and attendees themselves.

How to Apply: OpenFOAM Summer School 2008

To ensure quality work and supervision, the number of places is limited. To apply, please write a one-page description of the project you wish to work on, with current problems and goals to be achieved at the Summer School. Applications are open to all students on MSc and PhD University courses, as well as young researchers in commercial companies with OpenFOAM experience. Please not this is NOT an introductory OpenFOAM course: significant understanding of the project and software is a pre-requisite for application.

All applications will be reviewed by Organising Committee and successful applicants will be informed within 10 days of closure. Deadline for applications is 1 June 2008. Please direct all correspondence to hrvoje dot jasak at fsb dot hr


This event is sponsored by Wikki Ltd. and we are looking for further sponsors. Due to limited financial resources, attendees are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation expenses, ideally bringing a laptop computer with them. Preferential rates and student accommodation are currently being negotiated.
