Shape coefficient / Form factor

Hi

I'm new to COMSOL. I've created an object, and I want to find its shape coefficient or form factor (I dont know if any of those are the actual expression, English is not my native language). Like, the shape has an impact of how the object behaves through wind etc...

Can COMSOL do that?

Thanks in advance

Re: Shape coefficient / Form factor

Hi,

If you are looking for e.g. a drag or lift coefficient, there are some such examples in Application Libraries and Application Galleriy. For example:
