Ansys 2020 R2: Ansys Fluent Update

We continue to improve workflows in Ansys Fluent and add new capabilities and innovative features to accelerate innovation and productivity. Learn about all the updates from pre-processing to new physics models and workflow improvements, including the following enhancements:

Pre-processing and usability enhancements

  • Start from an existing surface mesh in the watertight geometry workflow
  • Apply local sizing on labeled edges
  • The fault-tolerant workflow now supports poly-hexcore and hexcore volume mesh and parallel meshing
  • Select wild card options for filtering list items
  • Take advantage of expressions plotting and usability enhancements
  • Ansys GRANTA Materials Data for Simulation (MDS) library now available
  • Easily plot material properties


  • Use the streamlined CHT setup to reduce mistakes
  • Apply the capacity fade model to accurately predict discharge rates
  • Use the aging model to predict capacity reduction due to calendar and cycle life

Other Enhancements

  • A new generalized two phase (GENTOP) flow model is available for multiphase regime transitions
  • Improvements have been made to increase VOF robustness
  • Fluent's free shape optimization (adjoint) solver now uses the cutting-edge GEKO turbulence model to provide more accurate shape sensitivity
  • The validated Method of Moments (MoM) soot model has been added for reliable trend prediction of soot formation

And much more!
