Beginner with Solidworks Flow Simulation

Hi all,


I am completely beginner in CFD analysis and especially with Solidwworks Flow Simulation. Thereby I have some questions :

-First of all how can you certify your results with Flow Simulation? Indeed I used to do some FEA analysis using the software Abaqus for example. In order to certify my results, I refine my meshing until I get the convergence of my Von Mises stress. It looks automatic with Solidworks, is it right? (or it's maybe why we define goals...)

-Is there any ways to calculate directly the drag coefficient and find the center of pressure?

-Moreover my calculation looks really long... I attached the file if ever you can have a look... I need to find out about cavitation.


Thanks a lot for your help !
