How to show the other half of a symmetric body after completing the CFD RUN?

I need help, I used the symmetry BC in CFD and completed the run. In post processor I could not find how to show the other half of the body.
Can anyone help me?

Hey there, and welcome to the forum!

I am sorry that we currently do not have a symmetry filter in the postprocessor, which would be needed here. I will just add this idea for our product team to consider implementing it.

In the case of half body being simulated, what should I use as a reference area? I mean half area or the full area of the wing ,say?

You should use the area of the simulated geometry, that is, half area. This is because the solver will compare to the computed forces, which will act on the half body.

Ya, that is logical thanks for help
