• Advanced Workshop on Multiphase Flows using OpenFOAM conducted online in September 2020

    CFD-FOSSEE team successfully conducted one of the first online Advanced Workshops on Multiphase Flows using OpenFOAM. It was actually a 1-week workshop where the participants had to work on a screening task for 5 days, and once selected, they participated in the interactive session with other participants. They were introduced to the VoF (Volume of Fluids) method and Eulerian methods in a demonstration and hands-on session conducted by the CFD team.

    Faculty from IIT Bombay's Mechanical Engineering Department and Department of Energy Science and Engineering gave the theory behind the methods in their lectures and interacted with the participants. During the workshop, the participants presented their work from the screening task and later shared their experience and how immensely helpful the workshop was. Towards the end of the workshop, the participants also interacted with an industry professional and learned the applications of OpenFOAM in the real world.

     It was truly a successful workshop encompassing all the gamuts of Multiphase Flow in OpenFOAM.

  • Half-day event on OpenFOAM at Bannari Amman Institute of Technology (BIT), Sathyamangalam Dec 2019

    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.

  • One-day workshops on OpenFOAM

    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 have conducted one-day workshops that are useful to both new users and existing users wishing to broaden their basic knowledge of OpenFOAM. We have conducted workshops at:

    1. Shri Guru Gobind Singhji Institute of Engineering and Technology, Nanded, Maharashtra
    2. Symbiosis Institute of Information technology, Pune
    3. VJTI, Mumbai
    4. IIT Bombay, Mumbai
