The OpenFOAM Foundation is pleased to announce the OpenFOAM Open Day 2018.
- Date: Wednesday 19th September 2018, 10:00 – 16:00 UK time.
- Free meeting for the supporters of OpenFOAM who manage and maintain the software, contribute new developments and provide funding.
- Free live stream worldwide to OpenFOAM users and CFD managers who register using a recognised company email address.
- Videos of talks freely available to those who were unable to attend.
What is the OpenFOAM Open Day?
The OpenFOAM Foundation manages and maintains OpenFOAM so that it can always be freely downloaded and installed, and is robust, usable and extensible. Thousands of users depend on the OpenFOAM Foundation to sustain OpenFOAM — from industry, academia and research institutes, to consultancy companies, cloud, SAAS and HPC providers.
The OpenFOAM Open Day addresses the sustainable development of OpenFOAM, bringing together talks and discussion from:
- the network of collaborators who contribute developments to OpenFOAM;
- supporting organisations and consortia, e.g. the Process Engineering Consortium, which fund OpenFOAM;
- code maintainers, who respond rapidly to user feedback to improve robustness;
- software engineers, including Henry Weller (OpenFOAM creator), who continually redesign OpenFOAM as a unique platform for developing CFD tools;
- the operational team, including Chris Greenshields (OpenFOAM co-founder), who package, release, license and promote OpenFOAM, and maintain resources for users.
