xiasheng is on a distinguished road
hello, i am doing a 2D calculation result in the cfx.
I try to get the lift force and component of a cylinder.
lift force is easy, i use force_y@cylinder because flow direction is jast to X.
but i have problem of component, i want get force from normal pressure force and shear viscous force.
at first, i use theta=atan2(Y-0.005[m],X-0.81[m]) to get the agree of point on the cylinder,[0.81 0.005]is the center of cylinder.
for normal pressure force, i use areaInt(p*sin(theta))@cylinder to get it
for shear viscous force, i use areaInt(Wall Shear*cos(theta))@cylinder
in theroy, lift force=normal pressure force+shear viscous force, but i got (normal pressure force+shear viscous force) bigger than 3xlift force
i have checked fluent and it show me same lift force.
so i think some error about normal pressure force and shear viscous force
can some on help me? and if it is unscrupulous object, how can i get component of lift force?

ghorrocks is just really niceghorrocks is just really niceghorrocks is just really niceghorrocks is just really nice
Have you plotted the the theta function and checked it is correct? Also check the p*sin(theta) and Wall Shear*cos(theta) components are correct?
Note: I do not answer CFD questions by PM. CFD questions should be posted on the forum.
