These tutorials are perfect for beginners. You can slowly take your first steps in OpenFOAM.

Go back to Collection by topic.


  • First 3 OpenFOAM simulations - In this tutorial you will get a hands-on experience of the workflow of CFD simulations in OpenFOAM using three different cases (lid-driven cavity, pitzDaily & elbow).
  • Elbow case - In this tutorial you will get a first hands-on glimpse into the workflow of CFD simulations with OpenFOAM.
  • Cavity case revisited - Here you will be taken into the depth of an OpenFOAM case in order to understand all the important in- and outputs required for a CFD simulation in OpenFOAM.
  • T-junction case - In this tutorial you will try a simple simulation with the your newly acquired knowledge on CFD in OpenFOAM.
  • Introductory course - In these videos you will hear a detailed introduction to OpenFOAM by Professor Hrvoje Jasak.
  • Discretization – Part 2 - Use the scalarTransportFoam solver, do simulate the movement of a circular scalar spot region at the middle of a 100 × 100 cell mesh (10 m × 10 m), then move it to the right, to the top and diagonally.
