Overall Satisfaction with Ansys CFX

I am developing a valve using Ansys CFX has been helpful to confirm and improve the accuracy of my initial estimations made with Thermal Transient analysis. The flow simulation is much more accurate than the film coefficient boundary condition in thermal transient. It is a very good utility if one is planning to run multiple runs by varying the input parameters on the same geometry.
  • The GUI of Ansys CFX is pleasing to the eye and at the same time user friendly, making it a lot easier to identify the required fields.
  • The numerical scheme is based on Finite Volume Methods. It supports multi-phase flows with no mass transfer.
  • In the Ansys CFX, adaptive networking can be used for GGI interfaces and single domains without restricted physics.
  • One thing which I think they can do is provide flexibility to the user to modify the stuff inside the black box
  • Sometimes the errors can be confusing. The geometry of design and meshing is sometimes troublemaking.
  • The useful thing is it shows result in different color code.
  • Cavitation Modeling- there are several mathematical models on that.
  • It has made redesigning mounting systems extremely easy.
  • The interface of Ansys CFX is much neater than Ansys Fluent. I found it much easier to define materials and boundaries in Ansys CFX. Also, this will allow me to get much more accurate results compared to a simples Thermal transient analysis

Do you think Ansys CFX delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Ansys CFX's feature set?


Did Ansys CFX live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Ansys CFX go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Ansys CFX again?


The simulations obtained are very advanced, showing great results in the movement of fluids in the different states of which it is required to obtain an understanding of their movement dynamics. I obtained impressive and illustrative results of the thermodynamic properties that occur in said flow. Ansys CFX is an easy solution for doing multiple different types of analyses.
