    The HELYX-OS* is a Graphic User Interface (GUI) for OpenFOAM CFD use which provides a full graphical experience to CFD practitioners that work with OpenFoam. 

    This course explains the use of HELYX-OS* including the basic interface features and workflow, but also detailed discussions on how to set-up your analysis, important solver settings, effective CAD model importing and meshing features. The use of HELYX-OS* is demonstrated and discussed with real-life cases for which also the visualization and interpretation of the results are covered in detail. Analysis setup and optimization for minimizing computational time are illustrated together with best practices. After this course participants are confident HELYX-OS* users that are able to perform effective OpenFOAM CFD analyses.

    The course consists of 4 interactive, online live sessions provided by the instructor. Recordings and related training content are provided through our online portal.

    *ENGYS is the original author of the HELYX-OS software and owner of the HELYX® brand.

    Level: Intermediate

    This course consists of 4 instructor-led live sessions which consists of presentations, demonstrations and discussions of questions. During each session, participants can ask questions to the instructor (through chat or microphone) which will be answered. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants to view again. If desired by the instructor, exercise files are provided at the end of a session that will be discussed in the next session. These should be performed by the participant before they are discussed in the upcoming live session.

    Access to the course
    After your purchase is confirmed you receive an account to the EngineeringTrainer online learning portal, where you find the course welcome chapter and instructions on how to join the live sessions. Sessions are held using the software GoToMeeting and a log-in link is provided for each session through the portal. A test link is provided from the start such as to test if you are able to properly join the sessions prior to the first session. Live sessions can be joined using any device, including tabled and mobile. 

    You receive 6-months unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your work projects.
