    Start the software called Workbench.2021 R1 (or whatever version you installed).

    That has a column of Analysis Systems and component systems on the left and a large blank space called the Project Schematic.

    Drag and drop the Fluid Flow (CFX) item into the blank space. That will have a Geometry cell to create in the geometry editor SpaceClaim (or DesignModeler).

    When you click on Mesh, that will open the Meshing program. Once you have a mesh, you can close that program then double click on the Setup cell.

    The other CFD code is called Fluent.

    There are many free Learning Courses at the top of this site.
