I have a quite simple problem for simulation. Its water flow in a pipe with some diameter changes.

Can anybody recommend affordable software which is not to difficult to use?

Have you tried OpenFOAM?

Looks like a pretty simple problem. OpenFOAM might be overkill. Elmer will be easier to use. It also has a nice preprocessor. Search elmerfem on
