The CFD group at FOSSEE, IIT Bombay aims to promote the use of free/libre and open source CFD toolbox OpenFOAM (Free/Libre and Open source Field Operation and Manipulation), which is a replacement for commercial packages like Fluent and Star CCM.
We conduct one day workshops that will be useful to both new users and existing users wishing to broaden their basic knowledge of OpenFOAM.
We have conducted workshops at:
- Shri Guru Gobind Singhji Institute of Engineering and Technology, Nanded, Maharashtra
- Symbiosis Institute of Information technology, Pune
- VJTI, Mumbai
- IIT Bombay, Mumbai
CFD FOSSEE team at IIT Bombay organized a half-day event on CFD and OpenFOAM, an open source toolbox, used in academia and industry to solve continuum mechanics problems, including Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). This half day event was held at Bannari Amman Institute of Technology (BIT), Sathyamangalam, on December 12, 2019, and was attended by about 80 students from the Sathyamangalam and Coimbatore area. Prof. Janani Srree Murallidharan introduced the students to the basics of CFD, and also mapped it to OpenFOAM and its use as a continuum mechanics and computational fluid dynamics tool
