Many numerical methods have been used to simulate the fluid flow pattern in different industrial devices. However, they are limited with modeling of complex geometries, numerical stability and expensive computational time for computing, and large hard drive. The evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) methods in learning large datasets with massive inputs and outputs of CFD results enables us to present completely artificial CFD results without existing numerical method problems. As AI methods can not feel barriers in numerical methods, they can be used as an assistance tool beside numerical methods to predict the process in complex geometries and unstable numerical regions within the short computational time. In this study, we use an adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) in the prediction of fluid flow pattern recognition in the 3D cavity. This prediction overview can reduce the computational time for visualization of fluid in the 3D domain. The method of ANFIS is used to predict the flow in the cavity and illustrates some artificial cavities for a different time. This method is also compared with the genetic algorithm fuzzy inference system (GAFIS) method for the assessment of numerical accuracy and prediction capability. The result shows that the ANFIS method is very successful in the estimation of flow compared with the GAFIS method. However, the GAFIS can provide faster training and prediction platform compared with the ANFIS method.
