Hi Everyone, I noticed that Fluent people are using the term " The world leader" more often now. Anybody knows where that came from.

Thanks

Perhaps they think they are the world leader. Will that improve the quality of the solution? What world?

Fluent has a a strong marketing team that like to bandy phrases like this.

Dont be fooled by rheotoric, trial the codes for real applications and then make a decision.

If only other people did this more often, they wouldn't be stuck with poor software that was, perhaps, the easiest to use 4-5 years ago, but no longer....

Remember, try benchmarking on real applications that will test a CFD code, not on a simple one Fluent might suggest, that any CFD code can handle.

Marc, you scared me with your reply. I am in the process of evaluating the package versus some other packages; I am considering Star as well.

What really surprised me is that there was no reply from Fluent people at all. It looks like the "Marketing machine" failed to respond this time

Hi,

The term world leader definitely implies how much market penetration is there. For everybody's information FLuent is largest used CFD software.

Reasons ;

# difficult to use # inaccuracy of results # poor support # high computation time # etc....

Are these the reasons, I am just wondering.

Please let me know your opinion

Bipin
