Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understood that in low velocities the standrad drag equation:

[tex]F_d=\frac{ρv^2C_dA}{2}[/tex]

Could linearized to something like:

[tex]F_d=γv[/tex]

I am looking for the drag coefficient(either γ or C_{d}) for either a prolate or a tri-axial ellipsoid at low velocities (less than 0.5 m/s) in water. I found some papers providing drag coefficients for relatively high velocities but none with drag coefficients for low velocities.

Best regards
