CFX can do this and this is called distributed parallel. It is well described in the CFX setup documentation.

I read the instructions mentioned at the CFX help but they never mentioned anything about how the computers connected via USB or LAN or by router? should ANSYS CFX installed in all of the computers or no?

This is all described in the documentation.

You need CFX installed on all machines. You need to have rsh working between the machines - if you cna do this with a USB connection then good luck to you but that sounds like a LAN to me. You will also find USB does not have the band width or low latency required for multi-processor simulations.

I can't send it to you since it is copyright material, but I'm sure you can find some of the older verions on the web somewhere.
happy and Marion like this.
