I have a question:
I am trying to evaluate lift/drag from a square cylinder and I am struggling with the results I get.
I read that OpenFOAM produces fairly good results for such problems - but I also read, that OpenFOAM gives best results "dimensionfree" - and therefore most of the people are using v=1 and nu = "equivalent to get wanted Re number".
I need to use properties of air to be able to compare my results.
so I picked
Ux = 0.3
nu = 1.5e-5
and in forces/forceCoeffs(to calculate lift/drag in OF1.5)
rho = 1.2
equals Re = 20000
But my results are very bad, e.g Lift more than twice as it should be.
Any Ideas? What properties do you use for air ? And how do you get the right Coefficients ?
