Jens is one of the founders of sourceflux co-author of "The OpenFOAM Technology Primer". While working on his PhD, Jens dealt with is simulating ship manoeuvring processes with OpenFOAM. He started working with OpenFOAM back in 2008 and is a NUMAP Summer School Alumni of 2009. He dealt with a variety of different use cases and applications for OpenFOAM. Most of them considered low-Mach and high-Reynoldsnumber flows of incompressible fluids, either single- or multi-phase flows. For the majority of his investigations, a dynamic mesh is employed, to account for the ship-motion. For this, various kinds of models are used: predetermined motions with global mesh motion or a motion that is calculated at during the simulation, which then is incoorporated into the mesh using various morphing techniques. On the OpenFOAM Workshop 2012 in Darmstadt, he gave a training on developing function objects.
