Calculate Drag force for flat plate
Join Date: Oct 2009

I'm finding a drag force for a flat plate (very thin) in 2D that is perpendicular to free flow direction. In this case, the pressure force is much bigger than the viscous force, so I wonder if I can use wall y+ to judge the result ???
And what length I should use to calculate Reynolds number ? Because the flat plate is perpendicular to flow direction.
If the flat plate is parallel to free flow direction, I think wall y+ is applicable and I use the length of flat plate to calculate Reynolds number.
Thanks for reading my question.
