Thanks alot.

Hi,

you can find this in any advance fluid mechanics text book (Panton; White), but below is the general method to calculate Force contribution due to viscosity.

Fx = T11 x dAx + T12 x dAy + T13 x dAz
Fy = T21 x dAx + T22 x dAy + T23 x dAz
Fz = T31 x dAx + T32 x dAy + T33 x dAz

viscous stress is given as

where i & j take valeus 1,2,3

to calculated Cf
