How to Use Expressions in Ansys Fluent (and convert from CEL)

Summary of a recent webinar presented by Prof. David Fletcher on how to take advantage of the powerful python-based expression language now available in Ansys Fluent. Examples shown included the use of expressions starting from scratch, plus examples showing how to convert your existing CFX CEL into Fluent expressions.

Guest Blog by ECU-R: Analysing F-SAE Aerodynamic Flow Fields Using CFD

Guest blog by ECU-Racing on how the team uses CFD simulation to drive aerodynamic design improvements, explaining how CFD simulation results provide help identify problematic aspects such as flow separation, undesirable flow structures, and poor use of flow energy which can then lead to new ideas which can be tested in CFD to improve the overall flow around the car.

How to Improve Pump Efficiency through CFD Simulations

In order to improve pump efficiency, pump designers require fine-grain insights into complex fluid dynamics within a pump to help them identify areas that can be refined to reduce losses during pump operation. In this example, we look at the workflow to improve an existing pump’s design without requiring the original CAD drawings – instead using scanned data of an existing pump design.
