As an Engineering student using Ansys as my major tool, I have one question. For my final project I'll determine how long it takes (with different sets) for a mango (I live in a city with a great fruit business) to get an homogeneous temperature inside a cold storage. So we can improve the methods to refrigerate and maintain the fruit properties for further exportation. My question is,which Ansys tool would do it better? CFX? Fluent? Icepak? Please, it would save a lot of time, and I would be tremendously grateful. And thank you just for your attention.

Fluent should be a good option in your case.

I don't have experience with icepak so far but from Google results, I see that it is useful for thermal management of electronic applications. CfX is used for rotating flows as in turbo machinery. Fluent is useful for general purpose applications
