Ansys-CFX is the best software for turbomachinery simulations. esp. Fluid Structural Interaction...

CFX package has developed on density based approach. So its great to handle compressible Flow physcics. It has internally coupled with Ansys for FSI simulations.

I will suggest ANSYS-CFX esp. T/Mery applications.

sammy, you're talking about academics here. They don't pay much for licenses. Users in the industry have to pay the regular price for features that are not relevant. Scooby
