November 26, 2020 at 6:53 amfadi932SubscriberHi all,nI hope you are doing well. I am doing 3D bridge modeling in Ansys fluent for the computation for drag,lift forces. Can anybody please tell me will there be any difference in the forces, if I select whole bridge in the name selection and compute force on the whole bridge AND in the other scenario I just select front side of the bridge for the force computation. Which approach will give me the best results or it will be the same? Secondly, Can I compute forces on different elements locally, like force on only one girder along with slab of the bridge or I should compute force on the whole bridge? My origin is at centre of the bridge. I am using VOF,Kw-SST. Please help me in this regard. Thanks n
