hi,

If you use the force_x CEL expressions or the force calculator in CFX-Post then you get the total force on that face. You can calculate viscous drag by integrating wall shear over a surface. You can calculate pressure drag by integrating pressure over a surface.

ps: I hate postings which claim to be "important" or "urgent". If you have an important or urgent problem then talk to CFX support. We only post here because we like helping people with CFD and no-one is getting paid to do it.
