Tech Tip: What’s New in ANSYS CFD R17

ANSYS has made numerous improvements to Fluent and CFX at the latest Release 17. The goal for ANSYS and Ozen Engineering, as always, is to allow CFD users to make better design decisions earlier in the product development cycle.

Some examples of unseen technology improvements that will reduce time-to-solution include:

  • Partitioning speed & robustness.
  • Improved parallel processing performance, with improved efficiency on fewer nodes/cells per core.
  • Input/output efficiency for large models during solution.

Some new capabilities that users can take advantage of:

  • Modernized graphical user interface for Fluent.
  • Live solution post-processing in CFX.
  • Improved animation capabilities in CFD-Post.
  • Monte-Carlo radiation as a beta feature in Fluent.
