 April 3, 2005, 01:52 Drag Coeffecient Calculation #1 Mohamed Sobh Guest   Posts: n/a I solve structured grid volume arround sphere using navier stocks equations , it exact the same flow paths like those produced from fluent, when i calculate the drag coeffecient, it always gives different values for different sphere diminsion, i use pressure*area integration arround all ponits of sphere border to get the drag force, but i always get wrong value of Cd (1.3-->4.9), any one can tell me the reason and how to detect the problem in my code?

Please help me in grid discritization as i am mesing up th grid thts why i got errors. Please give me links or method of grid u used so tht I can have an idea for a cylinder Thanks ANy help will be appreciated
