Fluid dynamics researchers will be glad to know that the CHPC has recently acquired the ANSYS Research CFD licences, incorporating ANSYS® Fluent® and ANSYS® CFX® . The Licence is currently being tested for account usage and more information will follow this testing stage. It will be limited for academic use only. If you are a full time student or researcher at an academic institution then you may request access to use Fluent on the CHPC clusters.

ANSYS Fluent software contains the broad physical modeling capabilities needed to model flow, turbulence, heat transfer, and reactions for industrial applications ranging from air flow over an aircraft wing to combustion in a furnace, from bubble columns to oil platforms, from blood flow to semiconductor manufacturing, and from clean room design to wastewater treatment plants. Special models that give the software the ability to model in-cylinder combustion, aeroacoustics, turbomachinery, and multiphase systems have served to broaden its reach. “We are very excited to see this development. This acquisition will give our academic clients the ability to run models in excess of 100 million cells, that up to now was not possible locally.”, said Dr Danie de Kock of Qfinsoft, the South African Channel Partner for ANSYS.
