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:
I would like some advice, or direction on good tutorials, website to view to help me with this.
Thanks in advance to any contributors!

you can get the force x,y,z component on a surface (or a user defined group of surface) in cfd post
check these threads to get you started

New topic on same subject - Flow around race car
Please help with flow around car modelling!
you will probably find handy the search function in this forum and a good fluid dynamics book
Top 4 tips
1. Knowledge is everything and Ignorance is dangerous.
2. Understand your limitations and try to eliminate them.
3. Get yerself a bike and hoon the chuffer. You will soon learn why dogs like to hang their heads out the car window.
4. Please before asking any questions on how to run simulations in CFX, go though all the tutorials
