The drag coefficient, , of an arbitrary shaped object can be calculated by two-dimensional hydrodynamic cellular automata. Results spanning nearly four orders of magnitude in the Reynolds number ( ) are presented for a simple, hexagonal object, and good quantitative agreement with previous experiments on cylinders is obtained.
