Over the past few years some excellent contribution from OpenFOAM community members has been significant in developing a strong database of OpenFOAM related material. In this post I have tried to compile a list of references that could be useful for OpenFOAM users and developers. This list is by no means exhaustive and will be updated regularly to incorporate additional references.
When developing your own code in OpenFOAM, it is almost certain that access to mesh information will be required in order to evaluate various parameters. In this post, I have provided a short description on how to access some of this information which could come in handy while programming. These have been characterized into mesh connectivities, mesh coordinates and some other useful mesh data.
Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering (ZCCE) at Swansea University organizes a PhD conference annually. Our poster was awarded the 'Best Poster of the 2017 ZCCE PhD Conference'. The award was handed over by Prof. Spencer Sherwin at Swansea University.

Professor Javier Bonet was awarded with the prestigious 'IACM Fellows Award' in 2016 for his services in computational mechanics. The award was announced at the '12th World Congress in Computational Mechanics (WCCM)' in Seoul, Korea. He currently holds the position of Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research & Enterprise at the University of Greenwich, UK.
Attended the CISM-ECCOMAS summer school on 'Computational Fluid-structure Interaction' at International Centre for Mechanical Sciences in Udine, Italy. The course was coordinated by Prof. Charbel Farhat and Prof. Wolfgang Wall. During the course, I presented a summary of my PhD work to the audience.

Dr. Antonio Gil has been awarded with the prestigious 'O. C. Zienkiewicz Award for Young Scientists in Computational Engineering Sciences' in 2016. The award was handed over at the opening session of the ECCOMAS Congress 2016 in Crete, Greece.
I conducted a two day workshop on the use of open source code OpenFOAM. The workshop was organised at UPC BarcelonaTech, Spain and was aimed to get the attendees familiarized with the basics of OpenFOAM software. Various aspects were covered during the course including:
