A nozzle is a device used to control the characteristics of fluid. It is mostly used to increase the velocity of fluid. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a method which depends on various numerical analysis and algorithms for finding solutions and analyzing the complex problems that concern fluid flow and arbitrary of Fluid Mechanics. This paper is concerned about to determine A 3-D Numerical investigation and parametric_CFD Analysis of flow through Convergent-Divergent Nozzle using Ansys_CFx, which encompasses the variation of flow parameter like velocity, pressure, temperature and density is visualized using Computational Fluid Dynamics. The simulation of convergent divergence Nozzle through ANSYS FLUENT CFX is also done. Furthermore, A 3-D flow simulation of turbulent_numeric the flow pattern in-terms of velocity, streamline and pressure distribution density and eddy viscosity are graphically interpreted. Furthermore, the simulation time was steady state (Total energy) and turbulence (shear stress transport) and moving reference frame was used to consider the C-D under high resolution. And Fluid Flow (CFX) _CFX Solver with global Run setting, Run Mode[Platform MPI Local Parallel] and the parametric results are published in appendix. Besides, the geometry is done in ANSYS 16.0. Finally, CFD analysis was performed in finally, the discretization process and CFD analysis are carried out in Ansys Fluent_16.0.
