Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Software
ANSYS computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation software is a comprehensive suite of products that allows you to predict, with confidence, the impact of fluid flows on your product — throughout design and manufacturing as well as during end use. The software's unparalleled fluid flow analysis capabilities can be used to design and optimize new equipment and to troubleshoot already existing installations. Whatever fluid flow phenomena you are studying — single- or multi-phase, isothermal or reacting, compressible or not — ANSYS fluid dynamics solutions give you valuable insight into your product's performance.
ANSYS renowned fluid analysis tools include the widely used and well-validated ANSYS Fluent and ANSYS CFX, available separately or together in the ANSYS CFD bundle. Because of the robustness and speed of its solvers, knowledge and experience of its development teams, and advanced modeling capabilities, ANSYS fluid dynamics solutions provides results you can trust. The technology is highly scalable, providing efficient parallel calculations from a few to thousands of processing cores. Combining Fluent or CFX with the full-featured ANSYS CFD-Post fluid flow post-processing tool allows you to perform advanced quantitative analysis or create high-quality visualizations and animations.
ANSYS fluid dynamics solutions are fully integrated into the ANSYS Workbench platform. This environment delivers high productivity and easy-to-use workflows. Workbench integrates all your fluid workflow needs (pre-processing, simulation, and post-processing) as well as multiphysics functionality (fluid–structure interaction , electromagnetic/fluid coupling). Furthermore, the ANSYS Workbench environment allows for automated and easy-to-set up optimization or design exploration studies (for example, design of experiments, six-sigma analysis).
