Info about CFX
I am novice to CFD and don't know much about CFX. Need to know the following ? Please comment in short.

I know structural, thermal, electromagnetic analysis can be done in Ansys Workbench.

Is CFX a special module of Ansys Workbench? Does it need to integrate with Ansys Workbench to bring up the fluid boundary condition icons or CFX is just a mesher?

Thanks, Dip

Re: Info about CFX
CFX mesh does meshing for you. But CFX is used for everything else, pre-processing (except meshing ofcourse!), processing and post-processing.

It is not part of the workbench, but workbench can be used as a tool to launch CFX , and in order to create a whole project.
