Hello Jedi Masters,

I am running a fluid flow analysis of an object dragged through the water. The results are in and I am very happy. How do I find out how much pressure has distributed itself over my object?

I want a numerical answer I can put into a powerpoint presentation to accompany the streamline video.

I really appreciate your help! Super science is fun!

how about maxVal(p)@Surface_of_the_object or force()@object or you create a boundary intersection line and then make a diagram like rel.coord. on intersection vs. pressure.

=maxVal(Pressure)@Boom Front === 198 lb ft^-2
=maxVal(Total Pressure)@Boom Front === 205 lb ft^-2

Neewbie, you are all that is Manly, Muah!

multiplying by the area gives total Force:)
