I need to calculate the wind-loading force (lbf or N) that will be applied to my rectangular antenna enclosure (face area of 2.6 sq ft /0.24 sq m) in a wind speed of 60mph (97km/h). The estimated drag coefficient (based on a flat face with rounded edges) is 1.9. Can someone provide me with the correct formula to use, or point me in a direction to solving this? Thank you, Solsurfer1
