cd of sphere
sir i am trying to model flow over sphere in 3d, but i am not getting the experimental coefficent of drag 1.45 for the Reynolds no of 100. Anybody can guess the reason. Thanks in advance

Re: cd of sphere
May be I can guess the reason but you have to write in detail abt the solution procedure like coordinate system, boundary conditions etc...

Have you tried to benchmark the 2-D results?

Re: cd of sphere

Try to refine the mesh near the walls of sphere more.

i hope this may solve your problem.

I had worked on flow past cylinder.

but i was not having any experimental data to compare such work.

if you like to share things on this please forward the material to my email-id it will be very helpful.

my mail-id is
