Bridge Aerodynamics
 
I am trying to simulate flow around a 2d section bridge, modeling porous fences and wind shields by means of porous jump. I want to calculate global aerodynamic forces acting on the body I'm studying. What I would like to do is to EXPORT Cd and Cl time HISTORY, including also the contibution of the porous media. By now I've been using a simple trick, but It works only when fluent is not iterating and moreover I'd need a more reliable approach.

ANY SUGGESTION ARE WELCOME !!

Thanks In Advance,

jkl.
