Half day event on OpenFOAM 2019

About the event

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. Ms. Swetha Manian Sridhar spoke to the students about CFD-FOSSEE's Case Study activity wherein students can submit case studies and presented a case study which had been submitted by a student. The Case Study activity helps a students improve their job potential and also fetches them an eCertificate and a handsome honorarium. 

They also spoke about FOSSEE's Summer Fellowship program for 2020 which they plan on rolling out shortly. To qualify for this internship, the students need to clear the screening task of a minimum of 2 (two) Case Study submission.
