I have to analyse a 2d car model of length(3.4m*10m) with a 0.75 radius in top and below of the front part of car(the Geometry is attached).

To calculate Cd what should I put in area in reference value section in ansys.

Thanks


PS:I am folowing this paper
http://jet.utem.edu.my/index2.php?op...d=80&Itemid=47

And it say :

A bus-shaped with 10 m in length and 3.4 m in
height is a simplified model proposed by Sanisa and Davidson (2003)
which takes the square shape at its rear end with the ground clearance
at 0.29 m.

Actually I am modelling 3d vehicle model in design modeller and I am successful in making it but I am unable to create the round surface at front. So wanted to know how to put the round edges in modelling mode.
