finite volume VS finite element
Is FLUENT a finite volume or finite element package? What is exactly the difference between computational fluid dynamics softwares which are finite element based and the one which are finite volume based.

I have the same question too. Does any body know?

Fluent is a finite volume based solver. Most commercial codes are now finite volume based. The finite volume method is easier (or more natural) to implement for unstructured meshes and is more stable.

Is the solver of FLUENT, finite volume method for Solids? or for the solid materials FLUENT pertains to use finite element method as solver?
