 November 13, 2008, 20:24 Flow around ship #1 Pong Tato Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I'm trying to simulate flow around a ship hull to calculate skin friction resistance, viscous pressure resistance, and wave making resistance using CFX. How can I get the value of wave making resistance, viscous pressure resistance, and skin friction resistance from the post processor of CFX ?. How to calculate them individually ?. How about drag force in CFX, Is it wave making resistance,or viscous resistance, or skin friction resistance ? Thank you very much for everyone in this forum.

To separate viscous and pressure drag you have to look at the monitor output at the end of the simulation, where the report will include those numbers. I have not found any readymade CEL function to separate those, although you could calculate them using the integration functions in CEL. It is a good idea to monitor force_x@hull during the simulation to make shure you have convergence. This type of simulation converges very slowly. I typically run about 100hrs wall clock time on a 20 core cluster with a 6M element mesh to get wavfe pattern convergence.
