Drag Force on a Parachute Canopy

I’ve really enjoyed following this project by @jhorv_th determining the drag force on the canopy of a parachute. As the exact drag coefficient of the canopy was unknown due to it’s unique shape, an opened hemisphere was assumed. Overall the simulation results predicted a drag force of 4.96 N.

It was indeed an interesting journey which would have been probably unsuccessful without the help of the awesome community and the experts of SimScale! :slight_smile:
