iVEC and CSIRO invite you to attend training on MOOSE – Multiphysics Object-Oriented Simulation Environment.  The MOOSE platform is a general problem solver that can accommodate many mathematical models. More information about MOOSE can be found in this paper: http://www.global-sci.com/galley/ESCO2010-13.pdf

The facilitator is Derek Gaston, leader of the MOOSE development team at the Idaho National Laboratory.

Training will run from 9am-5pm on the 11th-13th June 2013. The intensive program builds a solid foundation for MOOSE use, so attendance on all three days is advised.

 Program Overview:

Tuesday AM – MOOSE overview, C++ Essentials,

Tuesday PM – Finite Elements, Input File Syntax, Writing your own Kernels, Multiphysics Coupling

Wednesday AM – Boundary Conditions,  Adaptive Mesh Refinement, Transient Analysis

Wednesday PM – Initial Conditions, Materials, Auxiliary Calculations

Thursday AM – Preconditioning, Executioners, Custom Parsing, Functions

Thursday PM – Postprocessors, Code Verification, Newton Damping, Discontinuous Galerkin, Testing, ELK

The C++ portion of the workshop is highly recommended, even if you feel comfortable with programming and C++.  This session will go over specific programming concepts vital to understanding how to use MOOSE (in particular, object oriented design).  Very little time will be spent on syntax.  Because of this, if you are not that familiar with C++ we recommend working your way through the C++ tutorials here:  http://cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/

Similarly, the Finite Element section is critical.  Even if you are familiar with finite elements Derek highly recommends attending this portion of the workshop.  We have a slightly different view of finite elements from what is typically taught in an engineering / mechanics setting and this section will inform a lot of the way you use MOOSE.

Date: 11-13 June

Time: 9am – 5pm

Venue: ARRC Auditorium, 26 Dick Perry Ave, Kensington
