Go back to "3 weeks" series.


Here you will get a detailed introduction into the work flow of CFD.


Yesterday you already completed this tutorial, but since it is one of the fundamental ones, it is a good idea to repeat it out of a second lecturer's point of view.

Grid convergence

In this video you will learn the importance of grid resolution and its effect onto your results.

Transport equation

Here you will get a basic idea on the structure of the equations, which are solved in CFD.


In this tutorial you will try a simple simulation with the your newly acquired knowledge on CFD in OpenFOAM.

Visualization 1

In this tutorial you will get a deep understanding on the scientific postprocessing and visualization of results in Paraview.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Postprocessing
  • ParaView in a nutshell
  • ParaView vs. paraFoam
  • ParaView GUI overview
  • Basic usage – Sources and filters
  • Scientific visualization with paraFoam/ParaView

Visualization 2

In this video you will get a summary of scientific visualization of results i Paraview.

Case details

Here you will get a summary of the case setup in OpenFOAM.
