2nd Iberian Meeting

28 & 29 May, 2018
Santiago de Compostela - Spain

2nd Iberian meeting of OpenFOAM® technology users

28 & 29 May, 2018 - Santiago de Compostela

The second FOAM@IBERIA Meeting, scheduled for 28 and 29 May in Santiago de Compostela, will be the annual meeting point of the OpenFOAM Iberian community for knowledge sharing and results dissemination. It is expected to play a significant role in the dissemination of OpenFOAM not only in Portugal and Spain but also in Latin America. The workshop will comprise presentations on the latest OpenFOAM developments in Portugal and Spain, OpenFOAM Basic and Advanced courses and lectures by prestigious invited speakers.

We count on the presence in Santiago de Compostela of all Foamers @PT and @SP among others, to continue to build together the OpenFOAM community.

Keynote speakers

Dr. Philip Cardiff
Dr. Philip Cardiff
Dr. Philip Cardiff holds a post as Bekaert Lecturer of Materials Processing within the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at University College Dublin. A graduate of Mechanical Engineering, Philip completed a PhD at UCD in the area of computational biomechanics, developing contact methodologies based on the finite volume method in OpenFOAM for hip joint simulations. Upon completing his PhD, Philip spent time as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow working on the development of computational models within the Irish Composites Centre at UCD, and within the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. His research interests include the development of finite volume methods for solid mechanics and fluid-solid interactions, with applications ranging from biomechanics and materials processing, to composites and geomechanics.
