Announcements Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Zagreb, Croatia and Wikki Ltd. announce a 3-day OpenFOAM Training and Workshop in Zagreb, Croatia 26-28/January/2006.

The idea of the workshop is to encourage the spread of OpenFOAM in the CFD community. The Workshop will consist of two parts:

Software and architecture overview. Here, a guided tour of the OpenFOAM library and various top-level executables will be given. This will be followed by some OpenFOAM tutorials with the help of expert users. The training sessions will be given by dr. Hrvoje Jasak, the original OpenFOAM developer.

Examples of Application. In the second part, a number of speakers will presents their experience with OpenFOAM and results of past and present projects.

Help With Porous Medium Modeling

Help Desk Anonymous writes "I have to simulate an aluminum tank that is filled with porous material (e.g- foam). Also, initially, it is filled with liquid (e.g- fuel). There is an outlet at the bottom to drain the liquid from the tank. As the fuel is drained, the vacant pores in the foam are occupied by air. Can anyone suggest me a suitable model to solve this problem. I can use CFD-ACE and Fluent."
