I work for a guy who is interested in CFD. But he is a licensed engineer in the telecom industry (w/ an MS in Telecom) and has forgotten most of the Calculus he took in college.

My current working math knowledge is through Calc 3 (Multidimensional.), and about half of standard course in Differential Equations. Some Linear Algebra but haven't learned Eigenvalues yet.

My question is is that enough math to become reasonably proficient in the CFD software called OpenFOAM? Or do I have to go on to learn PDE, Numerical Analysis and such. I mean I am prepared to learn those things if necessary, just wondering if it is a must to use OpenFOAM for Computational Fluid Dynamics.

And I do have about a semester and a half familiarity with C++ and some other programming languages.
