You have to pay for the best. Feraris are also expensive. Needless to say newbie probably drives a Skoda.

e-mail at to find out the price. He bought several CFD softwares including Fluent and he should know the exact price.

I don't doubt that there are students out there who can afford a personal license of fluent, of course is not my case. Comparing fluent with a ferrari?, well that's been a long time discussion I don't want to enter.

See the following thread;

If you need fluent for accademic purposal contact both your university and your local fluent distributor, maybe there could be some kind of accademic agreement,

good luck.

Re: Cost of FLUENT $$$
From my experience, the license costs appear to vary by user whether he/she is academia, industry, or government. I *believe*, though I'm not positive, that the academic license is several thousand dollars per year, but I do not know how many processors this will get you. Industry and Government licenses cost much more, of course. To get the academic license, I think the CFD professor in your Engineering/Science department has to make a request for the academic license for Fluent to run on Department/College/University computers only. I have not heard of anyone using Fluent on a personal computer, though some are able to telnet into University computers to use it, but I have seen this to be a rather slow process and really not worth it in the long run. People usually use the code on the computer or network it is licensed on. Good luck.

Re: Cost of FLUENT $$$
As far as I know, it costs around US$4000 for University with 5 licenses. But it may vary depending on the country. For Industry or private ? probably four times.
