Aerodynamic coefficients of non slender cylindrical body

  1. Sep 4, 2015 #1

    I am trying to calculate the location of the center of pressure for a non slender cylinder with a cone shapes nose.

    Referencing the internet and notes from a aerodynamics course, all the methods are for slender bodies.

    unfortunately, my body is not slender. I am reluctant to go to CFD route, as I do not have enough experience to trust my results.

    Are there any published methods to roughly analytically approximate the center of pressure location for this case?

    Thank you.
