Fluent is a popular commercial computational fluid dynamics package which is developed by ANSYS Inc. It contains the broad physical modeling capabilities needed to model flow, turbulence, heat transfer, and reactions. It can cover most CFD applications ranging from the compressible air flow over an aircraft wing to combustion in a furnace, from multi-phase bubble columns to oil platforms, from low Reynolds number blood flow to semiconductor manufacturing, and from clean room design to wastewater treatment plants. Special models that give the software the ability to model in-cylinder combustion, aeroacoustics, turbomachinery, and multiphase systems have served to broaden its reach. Advanced solver technology provides fast, accurate CFD results, flexible moving and deforming meshes, and superior parallel scalability. User-defined functions allow the implementation of new user models and the extensive customization of existing ones. The interactive solver setup, solution and post-processing capabilities of FLUENT make it easy to pause a calculation, examine results with integrated post-processing, change any setting, and then continue the calculation within a single application.
