Hi all,
Is it possible to estimate force acting on a surface resulting from a fluid flow in Fluent. If so pls let me know the procedure how to do it.

Best regards,

Hi novice!!
To simulate force on the surface we must set the surface on the boundary condition to be no slip (wall option). read the help for details
Hope it helps
Now Or Never!!!
