shear stress calculation on the surface of cylinder
I have written a code to solve compressible flow over 2 D cylinder....
i want to know how can i calculate the shear stress on the surface....
i need it to ultimately find the drag of the cylinder....
any help will be helpful.....i have the pressure values, and u and v values r there ....
step by step instruction will help me in order to obtain the shear stress on the surface of the cylinder....
Total drag mainly consists of pressure drag + viscous drag(shear)
finding pressure drag (Fx) is very simple equal to sum of (pressure x area) for all wall faces along X direction.
To find shear stress you need rate of deformation tensor. Multiplying this with viscosity will give you stress tensor ( laminar assumption) . That you can convert into forces along x dircetion multyplying by correcsoding area.
The link below will help you to find stress tensor
