which software best for simulation of propulsion
 
Hi to every one,

Even though i know very well about CFD, but I dont have much knowledge in commercial prouducts in CFD like like Fluent, CFX and Numeca etc..why because still now i used inhouse developed code for my simulations.. Now our company want to start new CFD group for simulation of Pumps and Propulsion systems.. we want to purchase one commencial software,, i want to know which one will be the best for simulating propulsion(let it be aero or marine propulsion), hydraulic pump simulation ..

Thanks

Hi,

Well, sa has one opinion, there will be many others. CFX is strong in turbomachinery design so you should definitely look at it. I would choose CFX over Fluent for turbomachinery but that is just my opinion.

At the end of the day you will need to trial the software on your applications. That is the best test of what is useful for you.

I would recommend CFX for pump and propulsion simulations.

Hi, Go for ANSYS CFX coupled with Turbogrid(meshing software for turbomachines)and Bladegen(Geometry).All part of ANSYS Workbench.
