Default drag readings in CFX
Posts: n/a
hi, I am an absolute beginner and have a project for my final mechanical degree. I have tested a wing mirror in a wind tunnel to get drag readings, and have the cad model in CFX. The thing I am struggling with is converting the pressure readings and results in cfx to drag readings. Is there an easy way or does it require manipulation of the results? any help appreciated.

No manipulation is needed. CFX includes pressure (and optionally viscous) forces created in every boundary of your domain in the results file. You can just use the calculator tool to get the value you want.

"(and optionally viscous)"

How do you turn on viscous forces?
