Hi Kamal,

What are you modelling? that will help you alot anyway if your model involves rotating element then the speed and the radius of the rotating element as well as the fluid material defines the Renolds number. Rotating Reynolds number = vL/kinematic viscosity, where L is the characteristic length = the radius of the rotating element.

That means defining the rotational speed and the geometry as well as the fluid material property leads to specific Re number

fluent code is dimensional...try to set the parameters (velocity, viscosity and so on...) in a way that the product gives you the Re that you need
