CSDMS 2.0: Moving Forward

Modeling of Earth Surface Dynamics and Related Problems using OpenFOAM®.

Xiaofeng Liu

UT San Antonio, United States

This clinic aims to introduce the open source computational fluid dynamics (CFD) platform, OpenFOAM®, to the earth surface dynamics research community and to foster collaborations. OpenFOAM® is essentially a computational toolbox which solves general physical models (differential equations) using finite volume method. This short clinic is tailored to be suitable for an audience at various levels (from beginners to experienced code developers). It will provide an overview of OpenFOAM. We will demonstrate its usage in a variety of applications, including hydrodynamics, sedimentation, groundwater flows, buoyant plumes, etc. Participants can also bring the problems in their fields of interest and explore ways to solve them in OpenFOAM®. Knowledge of C++, object-oriented programming, and parallel computing is not required but will be helpful.
