Open Source CFD Workshop

This year we organize as an additional side event a special workshop about Open Source CFD. Within this workshop we would like to give interested participants the possibility to get familiar with this opensource Computer Fluid Dynamics program. The workshop will be divided into three packages starting with introduction followed by two practical sessions.

For this special event we will provide bootable USB-sticks to work with them directly at the workshop. For the practical session it is advisable to have your notebook with USB interface available.

Please note that at this event technical support for existing problems in Open Source CFD cannot be provided!


The workshop will be held at the Seminar room "Kronprinz Rudolf".


Due to the limited space available for this workshop the number of participants is restricted by 20 persons!!! Please take care to register early enough for this event to get your seat. All registrations are handled on a first come, first served basis.

The Workshop is booked out !!
