This chapter describes the basic physical models that FLUENT provides for fluid flow and the commands for defining and using them. Models for flows in moving zones (including sliding and dynamic meshes) are explained in Chapter 10, models for turbulence are described in Chapter 12, and models for heat transfer (including radiation) are presented in Chapter 13. An overview of modeling species transport and reacting flows is provided in Chapter 14, details about models for species transport and reacting flows are described in Chapters 14- 18, and models for pollutant formation are presented in Chapter 20. The discrete phase model is described in Chapter 22, general multiphase models are described in Chapter 23, and the melting and solidification model is described in Chapter 24. For information on modeling porous media, porous jumps, and lumped parameter fans and radiators, see Chapter 7.
