In the computational fluid dynamic analysis, engineers are using a fixed rotation set-up for the moving mesh that includes the design of the turbine. However, if one is interested in a flow-induced rotation, the six degrees of freedom library in OpenFOAM can be used to handle such analysis. Discount of 25% possible.
Meshing a Helix
The in-house mesher of OpenFOAM® named snappyHexMesh is infamous in the community due to meshing problems in more advanced and complex geometries. This might be true if you are not using snappyHexMesh correctly. This training case shows the basic meshing settings for the helix geometry. Additionally, a way of the layer generation is shown which will end up with a coverage above 95 percent.
Free Convection in a Solar Chimney
In a wide range of engineering applications, the buoyancy force is the main driving force for the fluid flow. However, in the case of numerical investigations, engineers do have problems in setting up such cases or run into troubles/crashes with OpenFOAM®. This training case shows the set-up and geometry preparation of a more complex application. Discount of 25 % possible.
Gin Tonic (Conjugated Heat Transfer)
Heat transfer problems, including several different regions, are state of the art simulations for CFD engineers. In each engineering application, heat transfer processes occur. Depending on the investigation, the energy transport can be one of the critical quantities such as thermal stress, temperature resistance and so on. The training case provides the correct set-up for such kind of problems and will guide the trainee through the different steps. Discount of 25 % possible.
