Project Name: OpenFOAM GUI

 

Project Details: The CFD-FOSSEE team is developing a GUI application (as a Blender Addon) to alleviate the effort of constructing OpenFOAM cases. This involves creating UI widgets to compose cellshapes into complex multi-block geometries, graphical manipulation of solver parameters, exporting/importing OpenFOAM dictionaries and developing ancillary features for convenient usage. With this internship, we intend to expand current capabilities of the GUI and incorporate new features to address CFD problems of higher complexity. Ultimately, the GUI is envisioned to be a black box that envelopes OpenFOAM to relieve the user from defining verbose case dictionaries without compromising the extent of user control.

 

Qualification: Students pursuing B.E./B.Tech/M.Tech who seek to apply their programming skills in the development of scientific software. While having a background in Mechanical Engineering/Aerospace Engineering or related fields with programming skills is preferable, we also consider students from other areas (CS, IT, EE, ECE etc.) eager to partake in interdisciplinary research. Having prior knowledge of OpenFOAM and/or CFD can give you an edge over the applicants. We encourage you to learn and implement a solution even if you do not have prior knowledge. 

 

Learning Resources:

  1. Documentation on Blender’s Python API, application modules and standalone modules are available on their official website.
  2. Spoken Tutorials on CFD with OpenFOAM are available here.
  3. There are plenty of online resources available on the internet to learn Python including Python Spoken Tutorials.

 

Minimum Skill Set:

  1. Good coding skills and understanding of object oriented concepts in Python and related libraries (numpy, SciPy, pyvista).
  2. Familiarity with Blender and the Blender Python API (bpy) and Blender’s mesh accessibility module (bmesh).
  3. Must be good at undergrad level applied math.

 

Preferred Skill Set

  1. Problem solving ability, writing well-structured code in Python, C++ and implementing software design patterns.
  2. Should know to parse data-serialization formats (YAML or JSON).
  3. Experience with Blender (bpy, bmesh), OpenGL and standalone modules Blender-OpenGL Wrapper (bgl), Blender GPU module (gpu).
  4. Strong knowledge of mathematics, particularly in 3D geometry and numerical methods.
  5. Sound understanding of data structures (Trees, Graphs) and GUI development (preferably in PyQt, pyside).
  6. Skills in implementing algorithms related to computational geometry (3D transformations, Splines, NURBS, Surface mesh generation, curve fitting, interpolation methods, BVH Trees). 
  7. Experience of CFD with OpenFOAM.
  8. Must know how to use Git.

Number of Interns: 2

 

Screening task details:

Create a Blender Add-On that contains 3 'feature sets' and a supplementary feature. Each feature set should be a UI panel. The feature sets progress in difficulty level. Ensure to mention the version of Blender being used by the addon in bl_info at the top of your addon.py file or __init__.py file. 

 

Following are the expectations from the feature sets:

 

  1. Feature Set 1: Summon Cubes (Difficulty: Easy)
    • Create a UI Panel with an integer input box that accepts only a natural composite number (N) < 50. If a prime number is entered then display a simple pop-up with the message: “N must be composite”.
    • Create a button within the UI panel that evenly distributes N cubes (of side length = 1 meter) into a 2D array of size (m x n) in the 3D viewport. m, n are the number of cubes along the axes of the 2D array.
    • Create another button to delete selected cube(s).

     

    Example case: If N is 48, then you can create a 2D array of 6 cubes x 8 cubes i.e. m=6, n=8 or 4 cubes x 12 cubes i.e. m=4, n=12. The factors of N i.e. m, n are your choice. 

     

  2. Feature Set 2: Curve Fitting (Difficulty: Moderate)
    • Append the UI panel with 3 integer input boxes (A, w, n). A, w defines the amplitude and frequency of a sine wave along the X axis with n being the number of points forming the sine wave. 
    • Make a button to construct a sine wave of amplitude A and frequency w in the 3D Viewport by joining the n points with straight lines. 
    • Hint: explore blender gpu module/bgl module for this.

     

  3. Feature Set 3: Surface Mesh (Difficulty: Hard)
    • Make a button to create a surface mesh of a paraboloid (z = x2+ y2 for z < 8 meter) in the 3D viewport. 
    • Choose an adequate number of points to make a smooth surface.
    • Hint: create a point cloud belonging to the surface and mesh it. Meshing methods can be found in class bpy.types.Mesh.

     

  4. Supplementary Feature: Blender-PyQt App 
    • Create a PyQt app that displays your name and a file browser to select an image file (of any format).
    • Create a QPushButton that displays the image under-neath your name. 
    • Add a button within the UI panel that opens the PyQt app. 

 

Suggestions:

  1. Follow PEP8 coding standards. Write well-structured, modular and documented code. 
  2. You'll certainly impress us if you write tests for your programs. Think about edge cases and try writing error free code.
  3. Following the hints indicate how well you respond to guidance but there may be multiple ways to solve the screening task. So be creative with your solution.
  4. If your solution requires dependencies, then include a requirements.txt in the submission zip file. 
  5. There is no minimum GPA criteria. Your problem solving ability matters more. 
  6. Perform the tasks independently as stringent plagiarism checks are followed at FOSSEE. Any malpractice will lead to disqualification.
  7. Apply only if you are available for the entire duration of internship. You must also have the minimum hardware requirements to run Blender on your system.
  8. Early submission is not an evaluation criteria, however you must adhere to deadlines. Submit your application even if your solution is incomplete. We take a holistic look at your application.
  9. Lastly, don't feel discouraged by the number of interns. We consider your motivation as well. Try describing it in your SOP.

Internship Title: GUI Development for OpenFOAM, a computational fluid dynamics package

Internship Description: OpenFOAM is a tool used to solve fluid flow and heat transfer problems with applicability in Aerospace, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering fields. It is a C++ based coding tool and does not possess a good user interface. Currently, we at FOSSEE, have used a combination of open-source software Python scripts and Blender, to build a prototype GUI. We would like to build on this and extend the capability of this GUI.

Currently, the GUI is built so that it is able to solve 1 fluid-based problem (a tutorial). We would like to extend the GUI's capability to act as the front end through which users can solve 10 more problems that we have in our repository. Previously coded modules will be made available to enable the extension of this GUI.

The intern will work largely in the Python and Blender environments under the guidance of the Python and the OpenFOAM FOSSEE teams. Proficiency in Python is important, and familiarity with Blender is preferred.

No of interns: 2

Qualifications: BE/B.tech, ME/M.Tech

Field of Engineering: Third-year/Final year student (B.E / B. Tech program) or BE/B.tech degree holders or ME/M.Tech from CS/ CSE stream
