2D in Fluent Vs 2D in CFX
Hi everybody,
I want to know that does the method we use in CFX for a 2D in FLUENT?
I have solved a 2D model in CFX but it gives me floating point error in FLUENT....

As you may know, in CFX we just generate a mesh with two nodes in depth, and this will be our 2 D model....I know that FLUENT is able for 2D simulation...i just want to know that does the same model with 2 nodes-in-depth work in FLUENT or not...

if not, what do you think might be the cause of error in my case?

Thanks a lot

As you know CFX is not the 2-D solver. Therefore to run this case you should adopt any one of the following approache:

1. Use the 2-D mesh (better approach)

2. use the symmetry condition on both sides

Hi Far,
Thank you for your reply. I know that about Fluent.
My question is this:" Is a 2 node-in-depth mesh valid in FLUENT?

Yes it is valid, in this case you need to apply the symmetry on both faces.

but be careful and check solution with more nodes as well
