CFD Simulation – What is best?

Question:

What CFD (computational fluid dynamics) Packages are preferred or work best with Creo 4.0 models & assemblies?

Brent Price (Gilbarco)

Answered by: Kayle B. Brock, Engineering Manager (Carrier Corp)

The answer to this question will be widely varied depending on who provides it.  Carrier uses Fluent (ANSYS) for CFD projects here in Charlotte.   The process is; first the CREO models are translated to a STEP file, then meshed with Hypermesh, then loaded into Fluent.
