3rd Joint Franco/Belgian OpenFoam users conference

May 23rd and 24th, 2018 | Valenciennes | France


« The OpenFOAM Maintenance Plan »

Chris Greenshields.
Chris Greenshields is the Director of both CFD Direct and the OpenFOAM Foundation who manages and distributes OpenFOAM. Chris began working on OpenFOAM® in 1996.

« Overview of the combustion capabilities and ongoing developments: from handling chemical mechanisms to integrating turbulence. »

Francesco Contino.
Francesco Contino has developed a reduction method (TDAC) in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano. This method enables the use of more detailed mechanisms in CFD simulation. It has been recently included in the official release of OpenFOAM®.

Tutorial sessions by Lilla Kapa KOLOSZÁR (VKI)

  1.  Modeling of turbulent heat transfer: RANS & LES
