ANSYS Fluent Getting Started (New Fluent Experience)


This course teaches the essential skills you will need to start performing basic computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations on your own using ANSYS Fluent software.  Instructor demos and hands-on workshops cover every aspect of the end-to-end CFD workflow, including how to prepare watertight CAD models in ANSYS SpaceClaim, and how to perform the entire meshing and solution process in the single-window ANSYS Fluent user interface using the task-based, guided workflow for meshing imported, watertight CAD geometry.

All workshops begin with the import of a CAD model into Fluent and proceed through the entire single window workflow process of meshing, solving and postprocessing.

This course provides instruction in using features of ANSYS Fluent Software that are not found in versions of the software older than ANSYS Fluent 2019 Release 1. Users for whom ANSYS Fluent 2019 Release 1 is not available should register for ANSYS Fluent Getting Started course.



  • A technical education and background in fluid mechanics and heat transfer is recommended but not mandatory.  An engineering degree is not required.

Target Audience: Fluids Engineers, Combustion Engineers, Thermal Engineers and Aerodynamcis Engineers.

Teaching Method: Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. A major emphasis is placed on teaching by software demonstration and on the development of a solution to a design challenge from start to finish.

Learning Options: Training materials for this course are available with a ANSYS Learning Hub Subscription. If there is no active public schedule available, private training can be arranged. Please contact us.
