These reference values are not used during calculation, but only for some post-processing tasks. E.g. calculating a drag-coefficient, requires a reference area. Or if you ask Fluent to report on surface heat transfer coefficients, he uses the reference-temperature.

hope this is enough,

cheers, Laika, still orbiting

hi wat lika mentioned is correct if you are interested flow past problems and calculating coefficients like LIFT AND DRAG skin friction...... you should worry about reference area i think for 3D you can get it from projected area option bye
