See dictionary (Concise Oxford 10th edition): 'Smoothly graceful and easy' or 'able to flow freely; fluid' I'm not sure whether I agree with the first in this context. Unfortunately CFX was not in the dictionary.

I'm sure I read somewhere that a "Fluent" was an amount of something, can't remamber what exactly, may have been air or what was called ether ? Will have to try and dig out the right book !

Ok so I've found the book that has the Fluent explanation. This may have no relevance to the code but I thought it sounded good ! Isaak Newton developed calculus, however he did not call it this, he called it Fluxions. The name came from the idea of flow. He called the quantities that are generated by motion - Fluents and the rate at which they change - Fluxions.

So there you go ! does it have any relevance to the name of the code ? I no not !

It was an internal development name that just sort of stuck.

If I remember my folk law correctly it was called flow 3D and this conflicted with another commercial product. AEA were forced to change and CFX was picked.
