13 Summary of the PFAU 15 Meeting

I would like to thank all participants and especially the presenters! It is always a pleasure to meet you all. Our geography now extended till Tirol! We had different topics but with common interests in the multiphase, turbulence and heat transfer modeling. The general OpenFOAM topics were presented, as well as a comparison of the modeling and the experimental work.

At the BoF session the Tutorial Collection was discussed. A possibility of the OpenFOAM Tutorial Subforum at the CFD-Online was considered. These actions will be continued.

For the authors of the tutorial materials it would be valuable to fill in the "Further Reading" section.

It was also suggested to possibly add validation cases in the Tutorial and mark them with a corresponding flag.

OpenFOAM version compatibilities are still an issue, and many user stressed that they have to keep their solver with the old releases (e.g. 2.3x) to make their code running.

It was reminded to subscribe to the Austrian User Group Mailing list to stay up-to-day with Community activities.
