Hi,

I am a beginner with CFX. I am having to use it as part of my masters course. We have been set the challenge of modelling 3 very basic automotive bodies and then carrying out flow simulations over the bodies. I have completed the obvious tutorials, they have helped me set up and run test rests without any problems! The tutorials have not helped significantly with the result I require such as:

  • Lift Force
  • Drag Force


I would like some advice, or direction on good tutorials, website to view to help me with this.

Thanks in advance to any contributors!
