      Element cdFriction[0, 1]

Drag contributions due to friction

      Element cdInduced[0, 1]

Drag contributions due to energy loss through vortex structures caused by the pressure difference between the upper and lower sides of three-dimensional lifting surfaces.

      Element cdInterference[0, 1]

Drag contributions due to mixing of streamlines between airframe components (e.g., interaction between wing and fuselage or pylon and wing).

      Element cdPressure[0, 1]

Drag contributions due to the displacement of the flow around a component. Zero for irrotational two-dimensional flows.

      Element cdTrim[0, 1]

Drag contributions due to trimmed aircraft configuration

      Element cdViscous[0, 1]

Drag contributions due to shear forces on surfaces

      Element cdWave[0, 1]

Drag contributions due to energy dissipation in shock waves
