OpenFOAM Seminar Series

The open-source CFD package, OpenFOAM®, has become a significant numerical tool for a wide range of fundamental and applied combustion research. We are organizing the zoom seminars, in the theme of “OpenFOAM and Combustion Simulation“, given by the speakers worldwide who work with this package for their studies. The purpose is to facilitate the communications and possible collaborations in the international OF community. They are open to anyone who is interested in it. Registration for the seminar is required using real information (name and email). If you would like to participate or would like to know more, please send an email to Dr Huangwei Zhang (Email: huangwei.zhang@nus.edu.sg).
