Default Discretisation
Posts: n/a

I'm new to CFD and was wondering if anybody can help...I have been researching the basic methods behind CFD (finite volume, finite difference...) but I was wondering which Fluent uses? I believe it is finite volume is this correct?

I am confused because I spoke to someone who said it uses finite difference to discretise also...can this be correct?

Thankyou for your help
