Foam@PT
 Desde a génese, no final da década de 80, no Imperial College London pelas mãos de Henry Weller e Hrvoje Jasak, o conceito OpenFOAM sofreu inúmeras transformações. Contudo, foi somente a partir de 2004, desde que passou a ser um código de distribuição livre, que se verificou a maior taxa de crescimento, tanto em termos do número de utilizadores como das áreas de aplicação, na academia e na indústria. Hoje em dia o OpenFOAM é o resultado da contribuição de um grupo muito alargado de pessoas, representativas das mais diversas regiões do globo.

Os mais de 360,000 downloads efetuados em 2016 (para o OpenFOAM e foam-extended) e as duas conferências anuais (OpenFOAM Workshop, cuja 12ª edição decorrerá em Exeter/UK em Junho, e a OpenFOAM Conference, cuja 5ª Edição decorrerá em Outubro em Frankfurt/Alemanha) são um claro reflexo do impacto desta biblioteca computacional.

As comunidades locais de utilizadores do OpenFOAM têm tido um papel importantíssimo na disseminação do OpenFOAM. Em Portugal a comunidade FOAM@PT formou-se em Julho de 2015 em Guimarães, onde decorreu o primeiro encontro que contou com cerca de 60 participantes. Na primeira reunião decidiu-se organizar um encontro anual que podia ser dispensado em 2016, por ocorrer o 11th OpenFOAM Workshop, também em Guimarães, onde se realizou uma reunião do Foam@PT.

No 2º Encontro FOAM@PT, agendado para os dias 1 e 2 de Junho, em Coimbra, pretende-se formar uma comunidade ibérica, que se espera tenha um papel significativo da disseminação do OpenFOAM não só em Portugal e Espanha mas também na América Latina. O 2º Encontro FOAM@PT incluirá apresentações sobre os mais recentes desenvolvimentos em OpenFOAM efetuados em Portugal e Espanha, cursos em OpenFOAM Básico e Avançado e palestras de prestigiados oradores convidados.

Contamos com a presença de todos os Foamers @PT e @SP entre outros, em Coimbra para continuarmos a construir juntos a comunidade OpenFOAM.

 Desde su fundación, a finales de los años 80, en el Imperial College London por Henry Weller y Hrvoje Jasak, el concepto OpenFOAM ha sufrido varias transformaciones. Sin embargo, sólo desde 2004, cuando se convirtió en un código abierto, se registró la mayor tasa de crecimiento, tanto en términos de usuarios como de áreas de aplicación, en la academia y la industria. Hoy en día OpenFOAM es el resultado de la contribución de un grupo muy amplio de personas, representando a las más diversas regiones del mundo.

Las más de 360.000 descargas realizadas en 2016 (para OpenFOAM y foam-extended) y las dos conferencias anuales (OpenFOAM Workshop, cuya 12ª edición se llevará a cabo en Exeter / UK en junio, y OpenFOAM Conference, cuya 5ª Edición tendrá lugar en Frankfurt/Alemania en octubre) son una clara evidencia del impacto de esta biblioteca computacional.

Las comunidades de usuarios de OpenFOAM han jugado un papel muy importante en la difusión de OpenFOAM. En Portugal, la comunidad FOAM@PT comenzó en Julio de 2015 en Guimarães, donde se celebró la primera reunión con unos 60 participantes. En la primera reunión se decidió organizar una reunión anual que podría ser desestimada en 2016, debido al 11º OpenFOAM Workshop que tuvo lugar también en Guimarães, donde se realizó una reunión de FOAM@PT.

La segunda reunión de FOAM@PT, prevista para los días 1 y 2 de Junio en Coimbra, pretende ser el inicio de una comunidad ibérica, que se espera desempeñe un papel importante en la difusión de OpenFOAM no sólo en Portugal y España, America latina. El 2º Encuentro FOAM@PT contará con presentaciones sobre los últimos desarrollos de OpenFOAM en Portugal y España, cursos básico y avanzado de OpenFOAM y conferencias de prestigiosos oradores invitados.

Contamos con la presencia en Coimbra de todos los Foamers @PT y @SP entre otros, para continuar construyendo juntos la comunidad de OpenFOAM.

  Since its foundation, in the late 80’s, at Imperial College London by Henry Weller and Hrvoje Jasak, the OpenFOAM concept has undergone several transformations. However, it was only since 2004, when it became an open source code, that the highest growth rate has been recorded, both in terms of users and areas of application, in academia and industry. Nowadays OpenFOAM is the result of the contribution of a very wide group of people, representing the most diverse regions of the world.

The more than 360,000 downloads made in 2016 (for OpenFOAM and foam-extended) and the two annual conferences (OpenFOAM Workshop, whose 12th edition will take place in Exeter / UK in June, and the OpenFOAM Conference, whose 5th Edition will take place in Frankfurt/Germany in October) are a clear evidence of the impact of this computational library.

The OpenFOAM users communities have played a very important role in OpenFOAM dissemination. In Portugal, the FOAM@PT community started in July 2015 in Guimarães, where the first meeting was held with about 60 participants. At the first meeting it was decided to organize an annual meeting that could be dismissed in 2016, due to the 11th OpenFOAM Workshop that took place, also in Guimarães, where a Foam@PT meeting was held.

The second FOAM@PT Meeting, scheduled for 1 and 2 June in Coimbra, aims to be the kick-off of an Iberian community, which is expected to play a significant role in the dissemination of OpenFOAM not only in Portugal and Spain but also in Latin America. The 2nd FOAM @ PT Meeting 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 Coimbra of all Foamers @PT and @SP among others, to continue to build together the OpenFOAM community.

Coimbra

Coimbra é uma cidade e um município em Portugal com uma população 143.396 hab segundo o censo de 2011 e uma área de 319.40 km2. A cidade de Coimbra tem a sua própria mística muito especial, o resultado de um passado cheio de acontecimentos importantes e das memórias dos milhares de portugueses que, dispersos pelo país ou no estrangeiro, recordam os anos despreocupados na sua juventude como estudantes na Universidade. Os vestígios pré-históricos são escassos, mas permitem-nos estabelecer uma presença humana precoce no site da actual Coimbra.

Coimbra is a city and a municipality in Portugal. The population at the 2011 census was 143,396, in an area of 319.40 square kilometres km². The City of Coimbra has its own very special mystique, the result of a past full of important events and of the memories of the many thousands of Portuguese who, dispersed around the country or abroad, remember the carefree, easygoing, hopeful years spent here in their youth as students at the University. Prehistoric remains are scant but allow us to establish an early human presence on the site of present-day Coimbra.

Universidade de Coimbra/Universidad de Coimbra / University of Coimbra

The University of Coimbra was created by King Dinis signing “Scientiae Thesaurus Mirabilis” dated from 1290 and established by Papal Bull of Nicholas IV. It is the oldest university of Portugal and one of the oldest in the world. It also operated in Lisbon but, in 1308, it was transferred to Coimbra, alternating between the two cities until 1537, when it is definitely settled in Coimbra, the city of river Mondego. The University of Coimbra is home to the Joanine Library [Biblioteca Joanina] established in the 18th century and considered one of the most beautiful university libraries in the world. The library holds over 250,000 books dating from the 12th to the 19th centuries, dealing mainly with civil and canon law, theology and philosophy. Coimbra city boasts the largest botanical gardens of Portugal and one of the most beautiful in Europe. The garden, dedicated to the study and protection of plants and wild life, was established in the 18th century (http://www.uc.pt/en/visit/history).

Initially confined to the Royal Palace, the University spread throughout the city of Coimbra, while modifying its landscape and making of it the University City. It later enlarged with the creation of Campus II, dedicated to Engineering and Technology, and with a third campus devoted to Life Sciences. The University of Coimbra is also among the major science and technology hubs for applied and fundamental research in Portugal, home to one of the most powerful supercomputers in the country. With over seven centuries, the University of Coimbra has a unique tangible and intangible heritage, keystone in the scientific culture of Europe and the World and was granted in 2013 UNESCO’s World Heritage status (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1387/).

The University of Coimbra is at present an example of dynamism in its constant search for improving the management, research and the pedagogic models used, as well as an increasing link with the community by contributing more and more to the improvement of science, technique and to the affirmation that culture is an essential element in people’s lives. It occupies various areas in the city, with its eight faculties, half a score research centres, an Institute for Interdisciplinary Research, structures for the encouragement of entrepreneurship and of connection to the management field, a university stadium, the Science Museum, the Gil Vicente Academic Theatre, the Botanical Garden, structures of support for students (dormitories, university restaurants, bars, study areas, centres for social contact) and the biggest academy in the country (http://www.uc.pt/en/visit/uni).
