onurcanpiskin is on a distinguished road
Hello, I am performing aerodynamic analysis for external flow. I get results that are far from the drag values ​​I need. I use the K-W SST model. Since I work at 100m/s, my kinetic energy and omega values ​​are very high. I think there is no error in my case file, but my results are very high. Can you help me with this?

Unable to validate Drag coefficient for Flow past a sphere using OpenFOAM
Drag coefficient of sphere & spherical bubble at Re = 1

For drag the most common reason is the mesh refinement near the wall in order to capture the boundary layer accurately.
It should be well refined. Since you use RANS turbulence modelling, the mesh spacing at the walls should be related to the y+ values.
If you use wall functions, y+ should be between 30 and 100. If you donít use wall functions (low Re turbulence models), y+ should be less than 5.

A suggestion: Please name your thread better (relevant name) next time so that people in future can find it easily
