Pretty simple question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is it possible to completely calculate Lift and Drag from the pressure distribution over an airfoil?

Atm, I have Lift worked out as well as the Induced drag ( correct me if I'm wrong. ) but am having trouble working out how it would be possible to get the skin friction / parasitic drag.

Thanks for your help!
