Drag force analysis on 3D aircraft in ANSYS FLUENT

    • Wokil bihar

      When I did drag force analysis on aircraft I got following result


      pressure drag and viscous drag forces are separated. Total drag is 2449.87.  how can I understand these drag.

      Is total drag a parasite drag? 

      how to calculate induced drag from this drag or should I calculate induced drag manually from Cl?

      total drag = parasite drag + induced drag

      You can have a look at the aero tutorials that involves the calculation of drag: Chapter 2: Fluent Aero Tutorials (ansys.com)

      Thank you.
