Fluent is the industry-leading fluid simulation software used to predict fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, chemical reactions and other related phenomena. Known for delivering the most accurate solutions in the industry without compromise, Fluent’s advanced physics modeling capabilities include cutting-edge turbulence models, multiphase flows, heat transfer, combustion, shape optimization, multiphysics and much more!


Fluent’s ability to accurately solve the widest range of problems makes it the best fluid simulation software on the market, from airflow over an electric vehicle to combustion in a gas turbine, all while enhancing your experience with:

  • A user-friendly interface
  • Task-based and streamlined workflows
  • Innovative technology features
  • Best-in-class physics models
  • Parallel capabilities for meshing and solving

User-Friendly Interface
Fluent utilizes a single-window workflow, helping streamline the process from CAD to mesh to accurate results. Significantly increasing productivity, the workflow begins with task-based meshing, continues to a streamlined physics setup and concludes with interactive post-processing. An immersive UI enables you to directly interact with the model during setup for boundary conditions and post-processing for creating planes, contours, streamlines and more. Other features such as drag and drop, copy and paste and the ability to directly enter expressions help increase productivity by reducing hands-on time and repetitive tasks.

Task-Based Meshing Workflows
Accelerating the process from CAD to mesh, Fluent utilizes a single-window, task-based meshing workflow. By reducing hands-on time and repetitive tasks, these task-based workflows accelerate meshing time for clean and dirty CAD geometries. Each task in the workflow has best practices embedded into them, but these tasks, and the whole workflow, are extremely customizable to best fit your application. Fluent meshing can also be efficiently run in parallel to speed up the process even more.
Fluent has a patent-pending meshing technology, known as Mosaic mesh, that accelerates meshing time and produces a faster, more accurate solution. Mosaic technology enables polyhedral connections between disparate mesh types using a combination of high-quality hexahedral, isotropic poly-prism and mosaic polyhedral elements.
