With ANSYS Fluent — the most powerful computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software available — you’ll optimize your product’s performance faster. Fluent includes well-validated physical modeling capabilities that deliver reliable and accurate results across the widest range of CFD and multiphysics applications.
Fluent also offers highly scalable high-performance computing (HPC) to help you solve complex, large-model CFD simulations quickly and cost-effectively.
In 2016, Fluent was successfully scaled to over 172,000 cores to set a new supercomputing world record.
Innovations Speed CFD Simulations and Help Engineers Get Accurate Results with Less Training
Fluent Task-based Workflow
Fluent’s task-based workflow guides you through an organized simulation process that offers the most accurate results in less time. At each step in the process, the software provides the most relevant design options or defaults to a best-practice option. Benchmark data show that users complete the workflow with 70 percent fewer clicks and 50 percent less hands-on time.
The ANSYS 19.2 workflow also makes it easier for you to prep and mesh “watertight geometries.”
Mosaic Meshing Technology
Fluent meshing now includes a unique patent-pending technology that delivers higher quality results at faster speeds. This Mosaic meshing technology uses a high-quality boundary layer mesh to automatically combine a variety of boundary layer meshes, for fast and accurate flow resolution. In a benchmark simulation of a Formula One wing, the Mosaic mesh had fewer, better quality cells, required 34 percent less memory and achieved a 47 percent faster solve time.

ANSYS Fluent software contains the broad physical modeling 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. Fluent covers a broad reach, including special models with capabilities to model in-cylinder combustion, aero-acoustics, turbomachinery and multiphase systems.

Cray Saudi Aramco
Saudi Aramco needed to model complex multiphase problems along with unstructured mesh, complex geometry and multiple global synchronizations. These factors make them more difficult to scale than a single-phase laminar or turbulent flow simulation. “Not all codes can scale to full scale for real-life engineering problems. This full scale Fluent run is unprecedented", said Rooh Khurrman, Staff Scientist, KAUST Supercomputing Core Lab Saudi Aramco.View Case Study
Keelwit Technology is a Spanish engineering consultancy company founded in 2011. The company designs, develops and implements technology projects using a different yet realistic approach. Keelwit focuses on three areas: energy efficiency, sustainable mobility and fluid mechanics. They have been using ANSYS CFD on many client projects to solve highly complex engineering problems.
Watch this video to hear from Keelwit’s co-founders and partners, Isaac Prada y Nogueira and Jose Maria Cancer Aboitiz, about their experiences with ANSYS, particularly focusing on building the largest vertical wind tunnel to study skydiving conditions. The large structure required complex thermal and aerodynamic analysis, with ANSYS CFD used to simulate more than 50 operating conditions.View Case Study
