hello experts

I am just beginning to use ANSYS. My first task is an investigation of flumes (venturi, parshall) for discharge measurements. Therefore, accurate calculation of the water surface is very important.
Most models will be free flow, some submerged.

Which software gives better results, fluent or cfx?
A simple question, what may the answers be?
