Our Workflow

The Committee meets biannually:

  • One physical, at the annual ESI OpenFOAM Conference (typically, October time)
  • One virtual, to be held six months after the physical one (around April)

In between the meetings, we carry out planned activities and common projects on-going keep in touch via online collaboration tools.


The current priorities with respect to the aforementioned remits are:

  • Documentation of existing numerics in OpenFOAM
  • Validation and verification examples, concentrating on complex numerics items
  • Coordination with application area sub-groups
    • Basic validation and verification: General Purpose CFD
    • Numerics in Turbomachinery
