Welcome to the PF.

So far, your description is not enough to understand the setup. Can you post a sketch please? You can use the Upload button in the lower right of the window to upload PDF and JPEG files.

You may find something of interest in Hoerner's Fluid Dynamic Drag. It is mostly experimental results from 1930s Germany.
