Intuitive Fluid Simulation Software for Engineers


Ansys Fluent | Key Features & Capabilities

Ansys Fluent is the most powerful computational fluid dynamics tool and it includes well-validated physical modeling capabilities to deliver fast, accurate results across the widest range of CFD and multiphysics applications. Use Ansys Fluent to accurately simulate multiphase flows for gas-liquid, liquid-liquid, gas-solids, particle flows, and even Discrete Element Method (DEM).

As you upgrade to higher-power, higher-efficiency equipment, electric motor cooling becomes increasingly important. Ansys Fluent can be used to determine the best cooling system for an electric motor. Optimize this method, whether it’s natural, water, or spray cooled, to avoid affecting motor efficiency and damaging magnets.

You can gain insight into device efficiency and flow phenomena using accurate combustion models.

Accurate combustion predictions are critical for the precise mix of turbulence, chemistry, and the interactions between them. Ansys Fluent provides the accurate and validated reacting flow models for combustion applications of all types.

Rapid, accurate simulation will help you improve your battery design and safety. Age and life expectancy can be predicted using electrochemistry. To ensure top output and protection, thermal management and runaway can be simulated. By extracting key thermal characteristics and analyzing temperature in seconds, a reduced order model (ROM can be developed.

There are several different turbulence models to choose from depending on your application. Ansys Fluent provides a variety of turbulence models, including the industry-standard Generalized k- (GEKO) model. GEKO is a ground-breaking concept that uses tunable coefficients to adapt to various flow regimes.

Predict fluid-solid interactions accurately using pressure and/or thermal loads. To ensure that your product is secure, effective, and optimized, solve your fluid-structure interaction problem using Ansys Fluent. Ansys Fluent can solve Fluid Structure Interactions (FSI) problems on its own, and it can also be used in conjunction with Ansys Mechanical for more complex simulations.

Streamline your meshing and device configuration workflows to speed up your pre- and post-processing.

Ansys Fluent has task-based pre-processing workflows that can be customized to help speed up the process of creating a high-quality CFD-ready mesh. Both clean and dirty CADs can be used with the workflows. Application workflows have been simplified to help users reduce the number of clicks and panels they must perform and work with. Streamlined workflows for CFD include multiphase modeling, batteries, shape optimization, aerodynamics, and other workflows.
