Default Fluent or StarCD for Internal flow
Posts: n/a
Hello all,

I have a choice between using StarCD or FLUENT (both are already available) to model internal flow through pipes and valves. If anyone has experience with both or either of them for flow through pipes, I would appreciate any feedback/advice. Thanks.

Star is a better solver, but post-processing and Pre-processing is not easy. Fluent is easy to use. My experience is Star gives better result, especially for heat transfer.
