body forces and moments
Will the RANS solver provide forces and moments for bodies within a model? The scenario is that we're looking for a CFD option for aircraft external flow analysis for determining loads on modifications; three current projects comprise:
1. survey sensor housings
2. engine modification requiring substantial changes to cowl geometry
3. wing-in-ground-effect aircraft control system design incl. stability analysis
We need to be able to resolve the forces and moments for the modification parts independently of the rest of the model.
Also with the WIG we need to be able to move control surfaces between solutions to obtain both complete aircraft forces and moments as well as the specific loads on the control surfaces without having to recreate the complete model for each surface position.
