FLUENT TUTORIALS - Cornell University
About the FLUENT Tutorials
This FLUENT short course consists of a set of tutorials on using FLUENT to solveproblems in fluid mechanics. The tutorials lead the user through the stepsinvolved in solving a selected set of problems using GAMBIT (the preprocessor)and FLUENT. We not only provide the solution steps but also the rationalebehind them. It is worthwhile for the user to understand the underlyingconcepts as she goes through the tutorials in order to be able to correctly applyFLUENT to other problems. The user would be ill-served by clicking through thetutorials in zombie-mode. Each tutorial is followed by problems which aregeared towards strengthening and reinforcing the knowledge andunderstanding gained in the tutorials. Working through the problem sets is anintrinsic part of the learning process and shouldn't be skipped.These tutorials have been developed by theSwanson Engineering Simulation Programin theSibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineeringat Cornell University. The Swanson Engineering Simulation Program has beenestablished with the goal of integrating computer-based simulations into themechanical engineering curriculum. The development of these tutorials is beingsupported by aFaculty Innovation in Teachingaward from Cornell University.
What is FLUENT
FLUENT is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software package to simulatefluid flow problems. It uses the finite-volume method to solve the governingequations for a fluid. It provides the capability to use different physical modelssuch as incompressible or compressible, inviscid or viscous, laminar orturbulent, etc. Geometry and grid generation is done using GAMBIT which is thepreprocessor bundled with FLUENT.
How to use these tutorials
These tutorials are designed to be used online and run side-by-side with theFLUENT software. After you launch the web tutorials and FLUENT, you will haveto drag the browser window to the width of the largest image (about 350pixels). To make best use of screen real estate, move the windows around andresize them so that you approximate thisscreen arrangement.

FLUENT TUTORIALS - Cornell University
System and software requirements
System: Any system that can run GAMBIT, FLUENT, and a web browser.
Screen: Resolution should be at least 1280 x 1024 pixels for optimalviewing. A 17" monitor or larger is recommended.
GAMBIT version 2.0. These tutorials were created using GAMBIT 2.0.
FLUENT version 6.0. These tutorials were created using FLUENT 6.0.
Web Browser: These tutorials work best in 5.0 or higher versions of Internet Explorer and Netscape because style sheet support is needed.These tutorials can be used with Netscape 4.x but may not rendercorrectly.Choose a tutorial by selecting from the list at thetopof this page
Conventions used
Each tutorial begins with a problem specification. A solution can be obtained byfollowing these nine steps:1. Create Geometry in GAMBIT2. Mesh Geometry in GAMBIT3. Set Boundary Types in GAMBIT4. Set Up Problem in FLUENT5. Solve!6. Analyze Results7. Refine MeshThese steps appear at the top of each page of the tutorial with the current stephighlighted in red.GAMBIT and FLUENT uses cascading menus which are represented as follows:
Main Menu > File > Export > Mesh...
This means that in the
Main Menu
, click on
. Then, in the
menu thatcomes up, click on
and so on.
