The course gives an introduction to the OpenFOAM OpenSource CFD toolbox (www.openfoam.org). A major project work in OpenFOAM forms a large part of the course. The project may be defined according to the student's special interests. The result of the project should be a detailed tutorial for a specific application of OpenFOAM. The tutorials will be peer-reviewed and graded by the students, and the tutorials thus form a part of the course. The tutorials will be made available as OpenSource, as a contribution to the OpenFOAM community. To pass the course the student must do the project and peer-review the tutorials from the other projects.
