SigW OF6 Schedule

From OpenFOAMWiki

The first Wind Energy SIG group meeting is taking place on June 16, 2011 at the 6th OpenFOAM workshop. The SIGs are meeting in 116 EES (Earth-Engineering Sciences) on the PSU campus.

The point of the SIG meetings are to introduce ourselves to on another, share how we use OpenFOAM and share the difficulties we are currently working through. If you are interested in putting together a short presentation (<10 min), please contact one of the session leaders.
