Speaker: Jeff Adie, Principal Systems Engineer, SGI 

OpenFOAM is a free, open source CFD software package developed by OpenCFD Ltd at ESI Group and distributed by the OpenFOAM Foundation. It has a large user base across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and academic organisations. OpenFOAM has an extensive range of features to solve anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence and heat transfer, to solid dynamics and electromagnetics. 

This lecture will introduce OpenFOAM, its uses, its solvers and case structure. Other topics to be covered include: running a case, samplers and function objects, parallel operation, and PyFOAM. The session will consist of a 90-minute lecture, followed by a hands-on portion. 

Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop computer with an SSH client and X11 installed (for more information, please visit Access Information Page.

Jeff Adie joined SGI in 2000 as a Systems Engineer supporting the sales team in the ASEAN region. In 2002, Jeff was promoted to Principal and his role expanded to cover the Asia Pacific region. Jeff's work primarily involves assisting with solution design of HPC systems, as well as providing assistance to customers with HPC deployments, including installation, porting, training and tuning of HPC codes. Jeff's primary area of expertise is in CAE, specifically in structures, having previously worked at Toyota and on FEA/CFD analysis for America's cup class yachts for Team New Zealand. Jeff is also an expert in the visualization of HPC data.
