Open Ansys Workbench. Drag and drop a Fluid Flow - Fluent case into the main workbench area and save the project. Double click on "Setup," skipping the Geometry and Mesh options.

Go to Solution Setup-General and click "Display" under mesh options to show the mesh. It should look like this:

If you go to Mesh-Info-Size at the top menu of the screen, there should be 4700 cells in the domain.

To speed up future computations, select Mesh - Reorder - Domain in the menu at the top of the screen. This increases memory access efficiency.
