Default Help needed - lift coefficient on front/rear axle
Jan Jagrik
Posts: n/a
I'm a final year student at the University of West Bohemia. I've carried out an aerodynamic analysis of the body of middlesize bus (which is the objective of my thesis) using FLUENT 5.3. The drag coefficient determined by FLUENT is about 0.56 and the lift coefficient is equals to 0.31. I'm facing the problem with distribution of total lift coefficient between front and rear axle now. Can you help me to find the way how to distribute the lift coefficient between the axes in FLUENT? Does FLUENT have appropriate command or function or it is necessary to calculate it by other means? Thanks for any suggestions
