esinticik is on a distinguished road
Is the momentum equations able to solve using a staggered mesh by FLUENT with using one of the below scheme ?

First Order Upwind
Second Order Upwind
Power Law
Third-Order MUSCL

Thanks for now

sbaffini will become famous soon enough
The central and bounded central schemes are also available in fluent.

However, Fluent is a colocated solver thus, all the variables are located in the cell centers and a Rhie-Chow interpolation procedure is adopted.
