viraj is on a distinguished road
I am solving a problem of flow past a circular cylinder using ghost cell Immersed boundary method. I need to calculate Cd and Cl values over the cylinder. Can anyone guide me on this??? Currently i am integrating respective components of pressure and shear stress over the cylinder but not getting the correct values. Re No=100. I require Cd (avg) and Cl(rms) values.

thanks in advance
