On Saturday, October 15th, the ASME Milwaukee Section assisted with the OpenFOAM User’s Group 2016 Mini-Conference. Actually, the seminar was organized by Daniel Mather, Ph.D., (Digital Engines) and held at Madison College—just south of Truax Field. Ron Olson, the Program Director for Mechanical Design/Technology, provided me with a tour thru the well-equipped laboratory prior to the start.
Dan Mather welcomed everyone with a brief introduction to the training and we broke up into two separate groups. Although only seven registered for the “hands-on” software training, a total of about 25 participated in the conference.
The computer lab was well-equipped allowing us to work “hands on” with this open-source CFD software. At first, we were given the software on a thumb drive and practiced working with and loading programs of OpenFOAM.
Sessions of training included the following:
The seminar closed around 5:30 pm with Daniel Mather providing an overview of CFD along with a discussion of the Navier Stokes relationship. This seminar was an excellent opportunity to learn more about computational fluid dynamics and its application.
Thank you Dan Mather for providing us with this seminar.
