Hello all,
I'm working with flow over a circular cylinder while I'm not sure about the values of "area", "depth" and "length" of the cylinder in the reference values.

As in 2D modeling there is not any projected area I'm a little bit confused with these terms.
For 2D modeling the diameter of the cylinder is 0.02 m
For 3D modeling the diameter is same but this time cylinder has a finite height of 0.1 m

Thank you
