By default, your local materials list will include a single fluid material (air) and a single solid material (aluminum). If the fluid involved in your problem is air, you can use the default properties for air or modify the properties. If the fluid in your problem is water, you can either copy water from the ANSYS FLUENT database or create a new “water” material from scratch. If you copy water from the database, you can still make modifications to the properties of your local copy of water. The editing or creating of material properties is done in the Create/Edit Materials dialog box. To display the Create/Edit Materials dialog box, select the Create/Edit… button in the Materials task page. See the following sections for detailed information on how to change material properties.x.

In Ansys Fluent there is a very large library with different materials that we can use for different simulations. Adding new materials is very easy.

We share the same tutorial using ANSYS CFX.
