ANSYS Fluent


ANSYS FLUENT software contains the broad physical modelling capabilities needed to model flow, turbulence, heat transfer, and reactions for industrial applications ranging from air flow over an aircraft wing to combustion in a furnace, from bubble columns to oil platforms, from blood flow to semiconductor manufacturing, and from clean room design to wastewater treatment plants. Special models that give the software the ability to model in-cylinder combustion, aeroacoustics, turbomachinery, and multiphase systems have served to broaden its reach.

Today, thousands of companies throughout the world benefit from the use of ANSYS FLUENT software as an integral part of their design and optimisation phases of product development. Advanced solver technology provides fast, accurate CFD results, flexible moving and deforming meshes, and superior parallel scalability. User-defined functions allow the implementation of new user models and the extensive customisation of existing ones.  ANSYS FLUENT’s interactive solver set-up, solution, and post-processing make it easy to pause a calculation, examine results with integrated post-processing, change any setting, and then continue the calculation within a single application. Case and data files can also be read into ANSYS CFD-Post for further analysis with advanced post-processing tools and to compare results from different cases side-by-side.

The integration of ANSYS FLUENT into ANSYS Workbench, provides users with superior bi-directional connections to all major CAD systems, powerful geometry modification and creation with ANSYS DesignModeler and advanced meshing technologies in ANSYS Meshing. It allows brings the easy drag-and-drop transfer of data and results to share between applications (e.g. to use a fluid flow solution in the definition of a boundary load of a subsequent structural mechanics simulation). Combine these benefits with the extensive range of physical modelling capabilities and fast, accurate CFD results that ANSYS FLUENT software has to offer and you have one of the most comprehensive software packages for CFD modelling available in the world today.
