Ansys CFD for flow simulation - as versatile as your business!
From electronic components to wind turbines, from air conditioners to fuel cells - the right tool for every challenge.
Ansys CFD – flow simulation par excellence
Ansys CFD is one of the most powerful simulation programs in the industry. Depending on your requirements, you will need Ansys CFD Pro, Ansys CFD Premium or Ansys CFD Enterprise. Specific solvers offer a solution for virtually any problem.
With a number of preconfigured product bundles, ANSYS CFD offers a range of possible applications for flow simulation. It provides perfectly customized solvers appropriate to the task you face, or a tailored simulation environment with suitable pre- and post-processing options. With the ANSYS CFD Premium and ANSYS CFD Enterprise bundles, you can choose between two all-round carefree packages for flow simulation on an industrial-scale. To get started, ANSYS CFD Pro is also available with some basic functionalities.
- Tried-and-tested solvers including Fluent, CFX, Forte, Chemkin Pro, and Polyflow
- Many special extensions such as TurboTools for turbo machines
- Representation of multiphase flow and phase transitions, chemical reactions
- Solutions for thermal management and cooling problems
- High-performance aerodynamic calculations
- Simulation of the interaction between fluid dynamics and structures
- Suitable for HPC (high performance computing)
Fields of Application
When it comes to fluid mechanics, some people might only think of aerodynamics, driving and flying. But that's not all - with the help of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), practically all questions concerning the most diverse fluids (liquids, gases, mixtures) can be dealt with.
Internal and External Flow
Heating, Cooling, Thermal Dissipation
Internal flow like in pipes, ducts and valves, as well as external flow around structures, extensions or entire vehicles can be simulated. Of interest are pressure losses, recirculation areas, drag and buoyancy coefficients as well as fluid forces acting on structures.
Thermal Management / Heat Management: Whenever phenomena like heating, cooling or thermal dissipation play a role, CFD can gain substantial insight. Convective heat transfer between fluids and solids as well as radiation and heat conduction can be accounted for.
Rheological flow: highly viscous or viscoelastic materials as found in rubber or plastics processing, in glass production, or also in food technology, can be simulated with Ansys Polyflow. Manufacturing processes such as extrusion or blow molding can thus be represented in the computer.
Multiphase Flows, Transitions
Simulation Accelerates Digital Transformation
Whenever several different liquids and / or gases flow simultaneously, we are speaking of multiphase flow. Typical applications are filling or emptying processes (e.g., tanks, beverage cartons), coating processes, or also smoke and particle flows. Phenomena like condensation, evaporation or boiling and vaporization can be taken into account as well.
Ansys Fluent allows the simulation of reactive flows – i.e., mixing and transport of chemical substances (with or without chemical reactions taking place simultaneously). Typical applications can be found, for example, in the chemical industry, in rocket technology, in power generation or also in the area of fuel cells and batteries.
