You should try to use the tutorials, they really help. Jumping right into it and get stuck all the time can be frustrating. It's really worth it. It explains all basic stuff and also goes into details about the meshing in some tutorial examples.

Let me know where I can find tutorials
Can anyone tell, where I can find the tutorials. I did not see any tutorials in the solid works bundle.

Try the installation folder. In FloEFD it's there in the subfolder examples where there are tutorial and validation examples. I'm not sure where SW puts them. You can also check the help menu of SW maybe they have something about that in there.

I have tried tht
There is no information on the usage methods of the flow simulation at all. Probably, we have to learn it ourselves by trial and error method.... I would appreciate, if any one could share their tutorials......

Try to search the folders for PDFs at least the FloEFD one is a PDF and there are models for the tutorials but the explanation in the PDF give an idea on how it works. You can apply the boundary condition on any similar model. Have you checked for a folder "samples" and there is one tutorials with different things such as for drawings and there should also be the FlowSimulation or FloWorks folder or something named similar.
If you cannot find a PDF or help or anything like that and no one can send you his PDF you would probably have to check for a book on SW simulation tools where FlowSimulation is mentioned too. I know there is one in Germany but don't know if there is one in other languages.
