Hi everybody,

I am doing a study of flow through a porous sphere and want to calculate the drag coeffcient. However, Fluent does not allow us to calculate the drag on the porous object (just allows wall-boundary type). Hence, I have to find other ways and one of them is using the momentum balance over the control volume surrounding porous sphere. The problem is Fluent cannot export the Face Area Magnitude of cell elements on the sphere.

Could you please recommend any other way to export Face Area Magnitude of cell elements of sphere (I used unstructured mesh)? Or at least the nodal coordinates of cell elements so that I can calculate the Area by hand?

Thanks a lot in advance.

drag coefficient, face area magnitude, nodal coordinate, porous media
