      Hello,

       

      Talking broadly, Fluent (Chapter 1: Introduction to Ansys Fluent) and CFX (Chapter 2: Overview of Ansys CFX) are the CFD software.

      Whereas ‘CFD-post’ 2.11.2. CFD-Post (ansys.com) is used for post-processing simulation results. Nowadays, EnSight Chapter 1: Overview (ansys.com) is widely used for post-processing. 

      If you are talking about Transient Analysis (Structural and Thermal), they are performed in Ansys Mechanical: Overview (ansys.com)

       

      If you are not able to access the links, please refer to this forum discussion: How to access the ANSYS Online Help

       

      Thanks,

      Nikhil

      Transient is not a different CFD solver.
