Numerical Modelling of Coupled Problems in Applied Physics with OpenFOAM (NUMAP-FOAM) Summer School 2011 at the University of Zagreb
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture
Zagreb, Croatia; 31 August - 14 September 2011
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Zagreb, Croatia announces the Fourth edition of the Summer School on Modelling of Coupled Problems in Applied Physics with OpenFOAM (NUMAP-FOAM) for PhD students and young researchers in Zagreb in September 2011. The Programme Chairs of the Summer School are Professor Zdravko Terze and Professor Hrvoje Jasak, original OpenFOAM developer.
The Summer School shall concentrate on providing tuition for a small and selected group of students and researchers in academia and industry. The idea of the Summer School is to expand the physical modelling knowledge, numerics and programming skills of attendees using OpenFOAM in their research through direct supervision and one-to-one work. Lectures on chosen topics of mathematical and numerical modelling pertinent to coupled problems in engineering and applied physics will be delivered in addition. For further references, please contact the organisers or one of 40 alumni of previous Summer Schools.
To ensure quality of work and supervision, the number of places is strictly limited.
Place and Time
The Summer School will run over 11 working days working under supervision of Professor Hrvoje Jasak, with the assistance of local OpenFOAM experts, including dr. Željko Tuković, dr. Henrik Rusche and others. Tutorials, lectures and group work will run from Wednesday 31 August and Wednesday 14 September 2011 at the Laboratory of Flight Vehicle Dynamics and Structural Systems, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Zagreb, Ivana Lučića 5, Zagreb, Croatia.
How to Apply: OpenFOAM Summer School 2011
To apply, please write a one-page description of the project you wish to work on, with current problems and goals to be achieved at the Summer School. Application is open to all students on MSc and PhD University courses, as well as young researchers in commercial companies and government organisations with sufficient OpenFOAM experience.
Please note this is NOT an introductory OpenFOAM course: significant understanding of the project and software is a pre-requisite for application.
Deadline for application is 1 May 2011. Successful candidates will be informed within three weeks of closing.
Accommodation and Costs
Attendees to the Summer School should plan to cover their travel and accommodation expenses, ideally bringing a laptop computer with them. A registration fee for the Summer School is EUR 875 per attendee.
