Common Workflow for High Productivity

The ANSYS CFD product provides access to both ANSYS FLUENT and ANSYS CFX software. Thanks to ANSYS Workbench technology, these two well-known products share a common workflow. CAD connectivity, geometry modeling, meshing and post-processing are shared by both products.

Engineers can use the familiar ANSYS Workbench tools to perform parametric analysis and design optimization. ANSYS CFD works smoothly with pre-processing software such as ANSYS DesignModeler, ANSYS Meshing and ANSYS DesignXplorer tools. This combination greatly reduces the learning curve for those who want to be able to use both CFD products and other ANSYS solutions. The ANSYS Workbench platform integrates a large variety of technology choices tailored to meet individual needs, while ensuring interoperability and a clear future upgrade path.
