Hi,

I am doing the simulation of flow over the half portion of the truck using symmetry boundary condition for side plane. In reference value panel, which area should be used? either full truck frontal area or half frontal area of the truck.

with warm regards, JSM

it doesnt matter since the symmetry condition, you can get full view of the truck via DISPLAY/VIEW/MIRROR all the time.
