pradon16 is on a distinguished road

I am using ANSYS to create a simulation that shows the a volume flow rate of air over a 3-d model of Aluminum billets. Its supposed to help understand the flow properties of an air quenching system. Here are the parameters I have:

1. Temperature of Metal that needs to be cooled
2. volume flow rate of fans that are cooling the metal
3. The outdoor temperature that the metal is placed in

The idea is that Aluminum comes out of an oven at 1050 deg Farenheit and must be air-cooled by fans down to room temp (it's outdoors in the summer so about 100 deg Farenheit).

Should i use Fluent or CFX to model this system? I've tried both but in fluent I can't get a solution because it reaches divergence and stops.

All suggestions greatly appreciated!

cfx 13, fluent 13.0
