 November 27, 2009, 18:36 the pressure coefficient vs angle in CFX?? #1 New Member   Juan Lorenzo Join Date: Jul 2009 Posts: 19 Rep Power: 17 Hello to all, I have studied, with CFX, the problem of flow past a circular cylinder in a uniform stream and I have plotted in XY graphics the pressure coefficient vs position(m). The questions are: 1) How can I plot, in CFX, the pressure coefficient vs angle? 2) What is the correct form of the expression the pressure coefficient? this is correct? Coefficient Pressure = (Pressure - RefPressure)/dynHead dynHead = 0.5 * areaAve(Density)@Surface Cylinder * areaAve(Velocity)@Surface Cylinder^2 3) The pressure is the one that calculates in the surface of the cylinder? Thanks a lot

Iīm sorry. If you find this answer please reply on this tread! good work David bestniaz likes this.
