News Experience reveals that, in the industrial context at least, CFD is a difficult technology to apply successfully. The practitioner must be highly skilled and knowledgeable in order to set up and/or select model inputs appropriately, and then to be in a position to interpret the results reliably against design or assessment requirements.

A degree of uncertainty tends to prevail even in the hands of an expert. In short, the practice of CFD must be viewed as a knowledge-based activity. Despite the fact that highly sophisticated CFD analysis codes are widely available, the construction of this all important knowledge base has received little attention until now.

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.
