Sig Turbomachinery / Meetings
1 Year 2012
A meeting was held during the 7th OpenFOAM Workshop (Technische Universität Darmstadt, Darmstadt, Germany), on June 28. It should be noted that there was also a Turbomachinery training at OFW7, a training course held on June 25. There was also a Turbomachinery session held on June 26 (see OFWS7-programSchedule).
During the Turbomachinery meeting, there were presentations and discussions about the mixingPlane interface available under the git branch mixingPlane_RC1 under OpenFOAM-1.6-ext. The slides that were presented during the meeting are available under Workshop-Documents/CommunityDay/SIG_Turbo .
Agenda of the meeting:
- Introduction to the OpenFOAM Turbomachinery Working Group
- The mixingPlane interface :
- Contributions, presentations, discussion from the audience
The discussions were quite interesting about the behaviour of the current implementation of the mixingPlane interface during the meeting. Comments and inputs are welcomed.
