help for beginner
hello evryone.. i`m a student of mechanical engg and an absolute beginner in CFD. i`ve to simulate IC engine combustion chambers for turbulence. what is better ... a 2D or a 3D analysis?i mean ;in terms of accuracy and difficulty level?

pls. help
thank u in advance

You should perform 3D simulations if you are trying to examine turbulence in IC engines. The difficulty level depends on what code you are using.

I hope this helps.

thank u senecal..
i`l be using ANSYS CFX or there any better code u know for this type of simulation?
thanks again.
