Hello everyone,

I would like to ask is there any features in AcuSolve/AcuConsole/HyperMesh to calculate frontal area? For simple object (cylinder/box) i can calculate it manually, but not for complex object such as offshore jacket platform/ships/FPSO.

p/s: If im not mistaken, in Ansys Fluent, the frontal area (reference area) can be calculate automatically by Fluent itself. Hopefully AcSolve have this feature as well.

One easy way to the frontal area calculation is import the surface mesh (.Nas or Bdf format) in Virtual Wind Tunnel. It calculates the frontal area automatically.
