Calculation of the lift\drag coefficient
1 Attachment(s)
Hello my friends here,

I have just finished a code on catching the shock around a blunt body with the method of Finite Difference Method (FDM). I have all primitive variables available.

My question is : How to calculate the lift\drag and then the corresponding coefficient?

I am thinking on calculate the force node by node and then sum them up, but I don't know to what accuracy this method will work.The envolvement of the metrics may aggravate the accuracy.

Is there some more accurate methods? Thanks a lot. :)
