    Extending the limits of simulation

    The 7th OpenFOAM® was held June 25th to 28th 2012 in Darmstadt.

    Impressions from the 7th OpenFOAM® Workshop in Darmstadt

    On June 25th 2012 the 7th OpenFOAM® Workshop started in Darmstadt. With more than 350 participants it is the largest OpenFOAM® community event of the world. The event intends to bring together developers and users of this open source simulation platform for computational fluid dynamics, to promote collaborative activities, exchange information and share experiences in similar areas of interest.

    Trip into the realm of interfaces

    Mit dem Zeitverschiebungsverfahren können Größe, Geschwindigkeit und Brechungsindex von Partikeln und Flüssigkeitstropfen erfasst werden.

    By Juri Loose and Tobias Müller

    Seemingly smooth surfaces appear as nano mountain ranges under an atomic force microscope. Liquids rise in capillary tubes or roll off surfaces as drops of different shapes. Simulated flows in computer programmes show the aerodynamics of a car or aeroplane. From June 11th to 22nd Juri Loose and Tobias Müller discovered the research on phenomena at surfaces. They had the chance to do a two week internship at the CSI and report on their impressions.
