Hi Foamers

Do anyone have an idea how the forces library handle axisymmetric cases?

Is that also based on the surface area? this would mean that I have to multiply by 144 if I have a 2.5 wedge?

Best Regards

To answer my own question

Yes that is exactly right.

Created an axi-symmetric and full 3D case with the same geometry and the results are spot on if the axi-symmetric forces are multiplied with 360/2,5=144.
