C++ and DPM training courses

Donna Fitzsimmons

I would like to draw your attention to the following training courses in C++ and DPM simulations taking place between 27th - 31st March at the University of Twente.

The MercuryLab project are offering the following intensive training courses:

A Practical Introduction to C++

27th - 29th March, 2017 

The Fundamentals of Discrete Particle Simulations

29th - 31st March, 2017 

Practical Introduction to C++, takes a practical, no-nonsense approach to teaching the widely used and highly versatile C++ programming language. The course is application-oriented, providing you with the skills and knowledge you need to produce complete, well-written and useful C++ programs. The course is suitable for those with a basic knowledge of C++ who wish to further extend and solidify their skills, or as a first introduction for those who are entirely unfamiliar with the code, or even programming in general.

Our Fundamentals of Discrete Particle Simulations course will teach you the background knowledge required to apply the Discrete Particle Method (DPM) to real scientific and industrial problems. You will learn how to design and create simulations which can accurately reproduce the dynamics and behaviours of particulate and granular systems, and how you can use these simulations to help you better understand, predict, control and optimise real-world systems. Topics include an introduction to granular materials, contact modelling, contact detection, complex geometries, calibration and validation, and post-processing.

The courses will be held at the Drienerburght Conference Hotel http://www.drienerburght.nl/index.php?id=44&L=2 in Enschede, The Netherlands. The courses are scheduled such that they can be taken individually or both together. The courses are suitable for students at undergraduate or postgraduate level as well as for post-doctoral researchers and those working in industry, or even individuals simply interested in acquiring new skills and enhancing their employability. Due to the high teacher-to-attendee ratio (a minimum of 1 teacher per 3 attendees at all times) and the broad skill-sets of our team, all levels of prior computing knowledge can be easily accommodated.

Courses start from as little as €400. The course price includes lunch, refreshments and all necessary course materials. 

If you are interested in booking your place on one of our courses, or simply wish to find out more about the services we offer, please contact us at bookings@mercurylab.org.
