I'm analyzing automotive aerodynamics. I have a question.

What is a reference area in X, Y, Z??
(Main menu-output-output of forces and moments on blockage objects -setting)

*my vehicle size
L : 4.92m
W : 1.59m
H : 1.74m

Please let me know.
Thank you in advance.

For the calculation of the drag coefficient, the reference area will be the projected frontal area of the vehicle.
