 September 13, 2017, 12:26 Drag force calculation using URANS #1 New Member   Felipe Silva Maffei Join Date: Dec 2015 Posts: 11 Rep Power: 10 Hi, I'm working in my end-of-graduation-course paper, it's ,briefly speaking, a study about the flow behavior under a NACA0015 with a flap and gurney flap. Becouse of the size mesh and turbulence model, a steady state simulation do not converge (residual target 1e-6), so I used URANS. I know how to calculate the average of variables, but, here is my question, can I calculate the average of drag force? Last edited by Maffei; September 13, 2017 at 12:28. Reason: erro in title

Make the X axis time, not iteration number * Export the data to a csv file * Load the CSV into excel, matlab, python or whatever you use for mathematics and calculate time averages or whatever you want. juliom likes this.
