organized by the

  • Institute of Scientific Computing, TU Braunschweig
  • Institute of Modelling & Simulation, Univ. Rostock
  • Institute of Fluid Dynamics & Ship Theory, TU Hamburg
  • Institute of Mathematics, Univ. Kassel

21/22 March 2017 - TU Braunschweig

The German OpenFOAM User meetiNg (GOFUN) is intended to advance the ideas and philosophy of OpenFOAM. It is an opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas between users from Germany and abroard.


With thanks to our sponsors the workshop is free of charge. Nevertheless, in order to allow a thorough organization, registration is mandatory before 16 March, 2017.
