Hello everyone,
I'm trying to run viscous simulation for Supersonic flow over inlet of McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. I have a project about Computation of Aerodynamic Loads that caused by the shockwave, on that inlet for this simulation. I could manage to run that simulation of supersonic flow over inlet of F-15 Eagle and you can find my results in the attachment file. But I couldn't figure out how can I compute these aerodynamic loads with using SU2 and observe with Paraview. I selected outlet of my geometry as a marker of the surface to be plotted or designed as you can see in my configuration file below. But I couldn't find which coefficients I should get in the history file.
And also, I couldn't decide which method is much proper for my simulation as a Convective numerical method and which Slope limiter that I should select.
I am using SU2 v7.2.1. You can find my configuration file below. Could someone help me to understand how should I proceed this project? I would be really appriciate for any kind of suggesstion.

Hi BarisBicakci,

I would suggest changing the MARKER_PLOTTING= ( Wall ).
As for numerical schemes, JST will be suitable to reach a converged state. However, schemes like the AUSM/SLAU family tend be better in higher speed flow.
