Anyone had any experience with it?

Well I have done a fair bit on it already.
I have just redesigned a rear wing for a Formula Renault using different characteristics.
Anyways, I have got plenty of results for flow and pressure gradients etc etc.

The only thing I cannot work out how to do is to understand the drag that the wing produces.

Can you help? Anything in this direction is awesome! PM me please or add my FB (Ryan Brock!!!!
Thanks

Ryan!!

Quite a few companies offer free 3d cad software where you can play till your hearts content.
You can save your work but can't export etc.

We use delcam at work for 3d cad and machining but I do use the solidworks freebie as a 2d viewer.

I am a mechanical design engineer by trade and have been trained on solidworks and have used in the past and have a copy at home , but at the moment comprehensively use autodesk inventor at my current place of work.

Unfortunately Ive never touched on aerodynamics though so cant really help you. Sounds an interesting project though!! :)
