One stop solution to learn openFOAM

A methodically designed course to build concepts step-by-step from basic to advanced level. This one course is best suited for someone just starting with openFOAM and wishes to formally introduced to the ocean of knowledge associated with it. I liked the fact that assignment submission is mandatory.

Excellent course to learn OpenFoam software step by step explanation is done in the course. (Highly recommended course)

Every assignments helps to understand each and every functional options with the help of step by step explanation which was quite excellent. The tutorials helps to gain deeper insight of OpenFoam software. This is a well structured course and I highly recommend this course for beginners and whoever new to open source software. Thank you so much Dr Sandeep and Dr Baris for this Excellent course.

Increase your OPENFOAM literacy for free and sound simulation environment.

When it comes to learning openfoam, process is very slow due to low user interface experience (most probably stemming from linux environment), when compared to other commercial tools. This course is exactly what you need for boosted & comprehensive learning of openfoam.

Perfect Intro to gain confidence using OpenFOAM

The lectures were very comprehensive but since it was based on the old foundation versions, there were certain lectures that would not make sense when using the ESI version.

Thanks for the feedback. A small correction here. The lectures are based on the ESI version and I guess you were using the foundation version

Right Course for Beginners

In my opinion, this is one of the best courses for OpenFoam, particularly for those who are new to the software. The instructor, Dr. Baris, provides clear and concise explanations of the key concepts and features of OpenFoam, making it easy to follow along even if you have no prior experience with the software.

Unique way of teaching and in depth explanations

I like the teaching style of Dr. Baris. He gave very minute details of each aspect of OpenFOAM. Waiting for advanced course from him on OpenFOAM.

Zero to Hero

This course fulfilled my expectations more than I expected. Instructions were clear and detailed. The homeworks led me to learn features out of the course's scope. I look forward to taking the advanced level of the same course in the future.
