Far-field drag analysis was performed on computational fluid dynamics simulation results of the NASA Common Research Model performed in JAXA for the Drag Prediction Workshop 4. Three levels of grid were employed in that simulation and the far-field analysis successfully acquired close values to the converged drag value estimated by near-field analysis of convergence study for all levels of grid. Drag decomposition in far-field analysis also revealed which part of the flow and which component of
