Print version Email story Tweet story
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."

Application: Computer Simulation Optimizes Displacement Ventilation System in a School Auditorium

Application By Heejin Park, Ph.D., P.Eng.

Computer simulation played a key role in the optimization of a displacement ventilation system in a school auditorium by helping to reconfigure the locations of the diffusers and the exhausts in order to eliminate unnecessary air flow. Displacement ventilation systems, which locate the air supply on the floor instead of the ceiling, are gaining popularity in North America because they are more efficient and require less energy to maintain a given level of comfort. However, displacement ventilation systems are generally more difficult to design due to several inherent issues like the need to avoid temperature gradients and drafts with the air supply located near the people.
