Difference betwwen CFX, CFDand ICEM CFD
Hi!, I'm a new user of ANSYS, I wanna know the difference between CFX, Fluent and ICEM CFD

William D Acosta June 8, 2011 10:38

ICEM CFD is a program for powerful Meshing and Postprocessing

CFX and Fluent are both Solvers (they use the generated mesh, discretize the governing equations and obtain a solution).

In fluent you can postprocess too, or use CFD Post instead

For an easy explanation of the terms above, check

Thanks for this answer, but i think that ICEM CFD can do some simulations, is it true??
