I am running Ansys CFX on intel i7 processor. How do I find that simulation is running on all core of processor?

Open up task manager (ctrl+alt+del) and go to the process tab. Click the "CPU" or "processor" tab (forget which its called). This should list all the processes going in order of most CPU intesive. At the top should be CFX solver (some weird name, but should be able to see it) and if there are 2 listed then 2 cores are being used, etc...

Ameen, you should take a look at the help section on parallel ("
7.6.2.*Obtaining a Solution in Parallel"), it is very thorough.

Best regards
