How to Calculate Drag Coefficient for Bluff Bodies?
Drag Coefficient for Bluff Bodies calculator uses Drag Coefficient = (2*Drag Force)/(Frontal Area*Density of Fluid*(Free Stream Velocity^2)) to calculate the Drag Coefficient, The Drag Coefficient for Bluff Bodies formula is defined as the function of Drag force, frontal area, density of fluid and free stream velocity. The force exerted on a solid body moving in relation to a fluid by the fluid's movement is known as a drag force. For instance, drag on a moving ship or drag on a flying jet. As a result, a drag force is a resistance created by a body moving through a fluid such as water or air. Drag is generated by the difference in velocity between the solid object and the fluid. There must be motion between the object and the fluid. If there is no motion, there is no drag. It makes no difference whether the object moves through a static fluid or whether the fluid moves past a static solid object. Drag Coefficient is denoted by C_{D} symbol.
How to calculate Drag Coefficient for Bluff Bodies using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Drag Coefficient for Bluff Bodies, enter Drag Force (F_{D}), Frontal Area (A), Density of Fluid (ρ_{Fluid}) & Free Stream Velocity (u_{∞}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Drag Coefficient for Bluff Bodies calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.404285 = (2*80)/(2.67*1.225*(11^2)).
