Hi everyone. I'm new to fluent and using it for my course at university. I need some direction on where to find good (preferably short) articles about the basic concepts behind fluent.

I'm after something that explains the theory behind things like the effect of reducing residuals, second order vs first order discretisation and grid adaptation/refining the mesh in high gradient regions. Any help would be appriciated thanks.

First you can try the tutorials of fluent at Connel university website.
Then try to solve the problems given in the ansys tutorials.
Other discretization schemes and residual convergence understanding wil come by practice only.
Hope that will help you
