ESI invites you to a complimentary OpenFOAM® seminar during which our experts, including some of the OpenFOAM® founding members, will share with you their knowledge and experience of OpenFOAM®.
ESI recently acquired OpenCFD Ltd., the leader in the Open Source Computational Fluid Dynamics software. ESI’s existing expertise in OpenFOAM®, based on its own know how in CFD and its previous acquisition of Mindware Engineering, will complement the knowledge and skills of the OpenCFD team, and will further ensure support for OpenFOAM® software . ESI’s proven know how and success in industrial software development will strengthen quality assurance and enable global support of a viable, trusted, and scalable solution for both large enterprises and small and medium size companies.
At ESI, we understand the constant pressure automotive OEMs and suppliers face to reduce development cost while maintaining a very high level of engineering innovation. In this environment, open source solutions appear to be very attractive propositions, providing the organizations access to virtually unlimited number of seats thus allowing engineers to simulate more design variations and fostering innovation. Also, with open source, engineers can efficiently customize their simulations as needed with full access to the source code. However, before this transition to open source can happen, associated risks need to be evaluated and minimized, and issues need to be addressed. In particular, one has to carefully consider the quality of the results, the overall workflow and associated productivity, training, support, legacy data and many other factors.
OpenFOAM® is a free, open source CFD software package offering an extensive range of features to solve anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence and heat transfer, to solid dynamics and electromagnetics. It has a large user base across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and academic organizations.
The emphasis of this event will be on automotive applications; however those interested in CFD simulation in any field are welcome.
