windwizard is on a distinguished road
Im doing an external aero simulation on a simplified vehicle geometry and interested in getting component force and moments out.


RF Wheel
Iter Time Cl Cd CMP CMY CMR

LF Wheel
Iter Time Cl Cd CMP CMY CMR


The only way I can think of getting this out is create a report definition for each force and moment for each component. Then make a report file for each component reading all the definitions. This works fine, but it leads to making 5 report definitions and 1 report file per component. If my geometry has 50 components thats a lot of definitions and files to make, and Im wondering if theres a simpler way to do this?


Report Defn 1
RF Wheel Cl

Report Defn 2
RF Wheel Cd

Report Defn 3
RF Wheel CMP


Report File 1
Report Defn 1, 2, and 3

Thanks for any help or advice
