Transient Velocity Drag Analysis

I'm doing a study on swept wings, using a transient velocity. Is there a way for me to get the wall forces recorded as a function of time on the transient velocity?

Please use plain text.

To everyone who has been viewing this-

 

The way to get a transient drag analysis is to run the simulation, saving at whatever intervals you decide. Then create individual scenarios at each time step, run them all for 0 iterations to allow the wall forces to be calculated, then click through the surfaces to get the drag values.

 

This process will be streamlined with Python scripting in the Autodesk CFD 2013 update, as I was informed by Ryan Abel, who did the customized training for my company.
