Learning CFD with ANSYS FLUENT (Workbench)
What you'll learn
- CFD with ANSYS FLUENT
- Design Modeler to create Geometries
- ANSYS Meshing Tool
- Setting up and solving any problem in FLUENT
- Using CFD Post to generate results to be used further.
- Basic Microsoft Excel knowledge

This course is intended for beginners in CFD. The course is ideal for anyone who want to learn how to use CFD using ANSYS FLUENT. First section includes the introductory lectures for Workbench, DesignModeler, and ANSYS Meshing. The next sections include the workshops. Each workshop is explained in detail followed by the geometry creation, meshing, setup and solution. Post processing is performed before concluding the workshop. The conclusion lecture is included for workshops where the results are compared with research articles or theory in different books of Fluid Mechanics.
Throughout this course, we would be using ANSYS Workbench with FLUENT Analysis system. For CAD, we will use ANSYS DesignModeler. For Grid Generation, we will use ANSYS Meshing Tool. ANSYS FLUENT would be used to set up and solve the case model. CFD Post would be used for post processing of results. Microsoft Excel is used where required.
The workbench files are provided for each workshop in wbpz format. The results generated are also provided in a compressed file for students to redo the workshops on their own and compare the results.
ANSYS Components covered are
What Students will learn
How to create a geometry in DesignModeler
How to create an optimum mesh using Meshing tool
Setting up the both steady state and transient problems in FLUENT
Generating presentable results in CFD Post
Students are encouraged to redo the problems solved in the workshops as an assignment.
If any problems are faced during assignments, students are most welcome to ask questions.
Additional Course details
The version used here throughout the course is ANSYS 2021 R2.
The videos are kept short and to the point, to save your precious time and let you practice more.
The repetitive steps are fast forwarded to focus on the skill development in quickest way possible.
The course is about performing CFD using FLUENT. The concepts are explained in detail according to the scope of this course. The options selected during workshops have theoretical background related to CFD and are explained in FLUENT Documentation.
The course would be updated regularly with new workshops considering the students feedback.
Who this course is for:
- Engineering Students
- Beginners in CFD

I am a mechanical engineer with a teaching and design experience in the field of Computer Aided Drawing and Engineering (CAD & CAE). Being an expert in ANSYS and SolidWorks, I have been teaching these skills to my students and providing my services in industry to solve many design problems. With an experience of field work, design projects and teaching, I can perfectly relate the theory with practical applications.
