Default I wanna have FLUENT
Posts: n/a
I am working as a faculty member in an engineering college. I dont know anything about FLUENT or any other CFD code. I have got demo cd and literature for FLUENT from company. It seems to be a very useful software in solving wide range of phenomena in Fluid Mechanics.

My first concern is its cost.

My particular interest is in solid-liquid (slurry) flows through various type of geometries. The literature shows that FLUENT can be used for solving such type of flows. However, I could not get any idea from the demo cd about the procedure solving for such flows. As far as my knowledge about slurry flow (particularly consisting of multisized particles) goes, the diffusivity equation (gravity force is balanced by turbulence diffusivity force) is very useful. I mean in slurry flows, the governing equations are diffrent from equations normally used in Fluid Mechanics (such as continuity equation, momentum equation,...., Navier-Stokes equation,....etc.).

My second concern is whether, we can use the governing equations for solving a flow problem at our will ?

Its very urgent and important for me. Please help me in this regard.

Thank you very much in anticipation.

If you want more information on equations solved by FLUENT, put the string "fluent manual 6.1" in google.

You should find some link the full documentation.
