What is the method used in CFX Solver?
 
Hello,
I wonder what is the method used in CFX Solver to solve? Is it the FDV, FVM or FEM?

Thanks for the answer!

This is described in the documentation.... a quote "ANSYS CFX uses an element-based finite volume method, which first involves discretizing the spatial domain using a mesh. The mesh is used to construct finite volumes, which are used to conserve relevant quantities such as mass, momentum, and energy."
