One way to optimize a Fluent simulation is to reorder the topology (i.e. cells, faces, and nodes) in memory so that accessing neighboring cell or face information induces a minimal overhead. According to Fluent, reordering the domain improves the performance of the solver. After reading the mesh file do the following
You should notice some improvement in your simulation after performing the reordering operation. Make sure also to save the case file so that the reordering of the mesh is reflected in subsequent runs.
