Hi everybody,
My domain is made of a building, with solid walls and the air surrounding it (inside and outside). Importing the mesh in fluent, the software has created wall and shadow walls for the building.
Somobody knows how what should I do to calculate Pressure Coefficients on each wall of the building?
I obtain values both on a wall and on its shadow, so I could summ up all the values obtained?Or I should consider just the shadow wall?

A shadow wall occurs when you have an internal wall with a fluid mesh on either side of the wall.
Generally the results on a wall will be the same as that on the shadow. So when post-processing you can use either of the two, it should be the same.
