Post Processing Viscous Forces


Hi everybody,

So I’m familiar with taking SimScale CFD simulations and outputting the results to paraview to be post processed to find the pressure drag, but has anyone had any luck taking those results and finding the viscous drag as well?

I’m interested in this because we create an extremely streamlined body that has a major component of drag being viscous.

Thank you!


Hi @uwmidsun,

This post might be handy:

Let me know if you need more.



Thank you so much for this. I was into this issue and tired to tinker around to check if its possible but couldnt get it done. Now that i have seen the way you did it, thanks guys
