"Powerful tool for modeling flow"

What do you like best?

It was an independent application emphasizing on modeling fluid behavior, but now it is fully integrated into the ANSYS Workbench, allowing designers to have a flexible workflow from drafting geometry to post-processing. It offers built-in functions to analyze the fluid-structure interaction. It allows to bring the easy drag-and-drop transfer of data and results to share between applications (e.g. to use a fluid flow solution as a boundary condition constraint of a subsequent structural mechanics simulation). Advanced scale-resolving turbulence models are also available: large eddy simulation (LES), detached eddy simulation (DES) and scale-adaptive simulation (SAS).

What do you dislike?

To realistically model the environment in ANSYS Fluent is not easy and parameters are needed to select very carefully. In addition, Fluent resources are not as many as other simulation software. Therefore, to complete a project, users probably need to trial and error for multiple times to get their results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very useful tool to run simulations for fluid behavior.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing the structural inputs to the analysis of the fluid-structure interaction (FSI) between wind and wind tower structure and helping with understanding the outputs. The results from ANSYS Fluent show the additional forces should be considered in the tower structure design where is not commonly calculated from the static study.

"ANSYS Fluent is especially good for beginners and students"

What do you like best?

ANSYS Fluent is great for beginners studying Computational Fluid Dynamics. There are many different help options available, including the in-depth User's Guide Content, Context-Sensitive Help, and Online Technical Resources. It is a pretty basic system that can help beginners learn the basics.

What do you dislike?

It can be glitchy at times and could definitely run faster. Sometimes I find myself waiting for it to load for longer than I would like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for beginners but a little slow/glitchy

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Learning the basics of fluid dynamics. I have realized its benefits in understanding the fundamentals of modeling systems.

What Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"CFD simulator"

What do you like best?

One of the best software to do computational fluid dynamics modeling for chemical and mechanical engineers alike. Also, inbuilt mesh generation is additional value addition. Earlier versions lacked it.

What do you dislike?

Ability to couple with the chemistry module

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CFD simulations for environmental applications.

"Using ANSYS Fluent to model fluid flows"

What do you like best?

ANSYS Fluent is a great software for modeling, especially for anything related to fluid flows. I recently started using it for modeling and have been surprised by how perfect this modeling software is for any kind of engineering situation. It really has all you need to for building/importing models, setting parameters to match your situation, and modeling.

What do you dislike?

It is difficult to learn. I'd suggest that taking an introduction class would be the easiest way to get started with ANSYS Fluent. The layout is kind of confusing at times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Just engineering modeling. ANSYS is the best software available for the modeling we're doing.

"Gives good insight on fluid behavior"

What do you like best?

It's good at generating meshes and running simulations on different types of fluids in different environments.

What do you dislike?

It's less intuitive than ANSYS as a whole. It requires more guidance and more boundary conditions. Searching for where and how to put these boundary conditions can be difficult.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is helpful in running simulations on products that we are developing. Fluent gives helpful insight into how a fluid will behave in a system that we are looking into.

"Great tool to simulate fluid flow patters"

What do you like best?

Exhaustive database of fluid flow models and it has a wide reach, extensive technical support and access to resources such as forums, community and manuals

What do you dislike?

I wish it is faster. It takes almost a long time to startup and that is really inconvenient, sometimes even puts you off. The other con is that there must be an option to tweak the default settings.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good tool. Easy to learn. Go through tutorials as beginners.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fluid flow patterns, design of pipes, channels, reactors. It plays a prominent role in fabrication and helps me to understand the hydrodynamic patterns.

"You don't need to remember the fundamentals"

What do you like best?

Fluent got a really useful upgrade and update when Ansys purchased the software and continued to develop it. The GUI and interface makes computational analysis readily available and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

The proprietary output and visualization options tend not to always be what I want, but workarounds are available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fluid flow in mixed media.

What do you like best?

Very powerful for reservoir modelling, flow models and simulations. Lots of features and very intuitive.

What do you dislike?

Processing takes a lot of time if the reservoir considered is huge for simulation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Characterization of reservoir is necessary to identify amount of fluid inside the reservoir.
