Default Flotran: Lift and drag
Joe Bystryk
Posts: n/a
I am trying to calculate the lift and drag on an airfoil using Flotran. I select all the nodes attached to the body. I can then use the 'intsrf, press' command to get the pressure forces on the body. When trying to use 'intsrf, tauw' command I recieve an error message that tauw is not a valid DOF. When trying to add DOF, tauw does not appear as an option. Can anyone help, or suggest a walkthrough of calculating the shrear stresses on an body in an external flow using Flotran? Cheers.
