navillus5 is on a distinguished road
Hi -

I am trying to get myself up to speed on using Fluent from within ANSYS Workbench (version 12.1).

I have looked for materials that provide some step-by-step examples that can provide some "best practices" and explanations as to some of the methodology used in both the design and meshing applications. I find that I keep running up against small items that are stopping me dead in my tracks. Ideally I would like to be able to begin with "simple" 2D problems such as a backward facing step,
flow over a cylinder and
flow past a flat plate oriented perpendicular to the flow.
For each of these, I have been able to obtain "ok" results but usually end up with solutions that don't converge when I attempt to refine my results.

BTW - I am familiar with tutorials from both
and Penn State:

I guess I am looking for the "missing manual..."

Any suggestions (short of going to a "training" session) would be greatly appreciated.
