mshf7 is on a distinguished road
I am analysing the ship drag in cfx, when the solution would finish I read the normal force on ship there is one thing and when I see it in cfd-post in function it shows another amount and is bigger.which one is true?
thank you

The solver is the figure to use.

It is unfortunate that the post processor does not agree with the solver on force and torque calculations. This is a bug which I hope they fix soon.
