At zero degrees, I understand that the reference area is the frontal area of the wheel. If the fluid domain is rotated to 5 degrees for example to simulate a cross-headwind, would the reference area change to the surface area directly inpacting the flow at that angle? So essentially, the projected area if viewed from 5 degrees? Or would it stay the same as the wheel is still going straight? n
