Joan Vilalta is on a distinguished road
I'm doing a research project about the aerodynamics in a F1 car and I'm doing an airfoil simulation to get the drag and lift coefficient and forces in ANSYS Fluent.
I've got the forces but when I tried to get the coefficients using their equations I realized that I don't know the area as I use a 2d geometry.
Then I found a thread which said that on these cases the width is 1m. Is it correct?
If it is, my geometry is scaled to 0,25 , does it mean that the width is also scaled?
