Default Cell facets
Posts: n/a
Hi, everybody! I am considering with external flow analysis over an airplane configuration. I would like to know is there a method of calculating normal vectors and areas of the boundary facets (for example along the wing) in order to compute pressure force at specific zones. FLUENT offers to compute face and surface areas (along three Cartezian compononets) but I think this is something different (see pp. 31-50, 31-51 in the FLUENT6.2 User Guide). Thank you in advance!
