Custom Model Development. The basic functionality of ANSYS Fluent can be enhanced by implementing custom models from the academic literature. The video shows a multiphase simulation of snow accumulation employing dynamic meshing and FSI. The implementation was done in UDFs. Automation. The graphical user interface (GUI) of ANSYS Fluent can be customized to help automate repetitive actions. The GUI can communicate directly with UDFs.
Fluent-Matlab coupling. ANSYS Fluent and Matlab can be seamlessly integrated by using customized UDF routines. The example shown is a two-way coupled FSI case, with computational fluid dynamics simulation in ANSYS Fluent and structural dynamics simulation using a FEM solver in Matlab. Integration.
ANSYS Fluent can be seamlessly integrated with custom in-house simulation utilities by using UDFs. The image shows two-way coupling of ANSYS Fluent and KilnSimu, a process-level simulation utility for rotary kiln applications.
