Ansys Fluent Meshing with Watertight Geometry Workflow (Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

The objective of this course is to provide instruction on the use of the guided meshing workflow for Watertight Geometry with clean CAD in Ansys Fluent Meshing.   Unlike the standard Fluent Meshing workflow, the guided workflow directs users through a step-by-step process of simple, intuitive inputs. Behind the scenes, Fluent Meshing uses built-in intelligence and automation to create a high quality CFD mesh.   The workflow includes automatic extraction of flow volumes from solid CAD models handle highly complex models, provided the starting point is a watertight CAD model. As a result of being so easy to use, the Watertight Geometry workflow makes it possible for all users to take advantage of the full single window workflow in Fluent, from geometry import to meshing to solving and post-processing.
