Hy guys ...
I am trying to use FLuent to get Cd around a cylinder, the Re = 150 and the viscous model is Laminar, but the result is different of experimental result. The simulation get a Cd = 1.1 but the real Cd = 1.5.
Can anybody help me?

Thank you.

hello MVAZ

can you please give some more information about your problem:
1. you are using Circular Cylinder or Square Cylinder ? with dimensions i.e. Diameter or size ?
2. size of the flow domain around cylinder (If you are considering Un-Confined Flow)
3. Fluid using for simulation i.e. AIR, WATER etc....

Regards
Dev.....

Hi Dev, how are you?
Well ..
I am using a circular cylinder with diameter = 1m
The domain is a rectangle with 55mx50m
The fluid is air with default properties.
