Default Cylinder modeling with body forces

Belki is on a distinguished road

I would like to model the blockage and the decrease in velocity induced by a cylinder by introducing body forces in my solver. ( I am modelling wind turbine wake with actuator line model)
I am thinking about using the drag force with Cd=1 and putting this force in the Reynolds equation.
I have several questions:
- Do you know any litterature about this blunt body modelling?
- Should I input the force over a disk or over the volume where the cylinder is supposed to be?

Thanks in advance,
