IHCantabria has created a set of tutorials with the aim of introducing the use of IHFOAM for applications associated with coastal and offshore engineering.

A series of self-explanatory tutorials have been developed, which are divided into two courses, one for beginners and the other for advanced users.

The course for beginners focuses on the generation of waves, guiding the student in the process of creating meshes, defining boundary conditions for wave generation, obtaining results and representing them. The course includes the generation of waves in 2D and 3D numerical wave flumes, as well as the simulation of waves breaking on slopes.

Beginners course:

Tutorial  Name Learning objectives
 1  Regular waves in an empty wave channel (2D)

- OpenFOAM introduction (2D).

- Wave generation (regular waves).

- Post-processing tools

 2  Regular waves in an empty wave basin (3D)

- OpenFOAM introduction (3D).

- Wave generation (regular waves).

- Post-processing tools

 3  Breaking solitary waves on a mild slope (2D)

- Wave generation (regular waves).

- Coastal hydrodynamics analysis.

- Post-processing tools.

 

The second course, aimed at advanced users familiar with wave generation using IHFOAM tools and the OpenFOAM environment, includes a series of tutorials for the simulation of wave interaction with coastal structures including rubble-mound breakwaters, fixed offshore structures and multi-body floating structures. The course is also combined with the generation of irregular waves. 

Advanced course:

Tutorial  Name Learning objectives
4 Regular waves interaction with a rubble-mound breakwater (2D).

- Wave generation (regular waves)

- IHFOAM (porous medium solver)

- Coastal structures (breakwaters)

- Post-processing tools.

5 Regular waves interaction with cylinders (3D).

- Wave generation (regular waves)

- Mesh generation

- Fixed offshore structures

- Post-processing tools

 6 Regular waves interaction with a floating structure (3D).

- Wave generation (regular waves)

- Overset framework

- Post-processing tools

7 Random waves interaction on the pile group of base-foundation of a bridge (3D).

- Wave generation (irregular waves)

- IHFOAM (porous medium solver)

- Post-processing tools

8 Random waves interaction with 3 moored buoys (3D).

- Wave generation (irregular waves)

- Overset framework

- Post-processing tools

 

 

The tutorials are self-explanatory and contain all the necessary information to reproduce the cases and run the simulations.

Tutorials will be updated frequently and new tutorials will be included in the following months. Specific tutorials can be created on demand.

Please, note that there are also scheduled courses and on-site training available. Next course will be schedule by October and announced soon.
