2D Airfoil Centre of Pressure, Pitch Moment and Pitch Moment Coefficient
 
Hi everyone,

I would like to know how could I calculate the COP of a 2D airfoil and the Pitching Moment and Pitching Moment Coefficientwith respect to 50% of the chord.

I have defined a parameter set in ANSYS12.1 Workbench to compute the airfoil's polars where I have lift, drag, y+, ... but would like to get the moment as well.

I have "inherited" this configuration and don't have enough experience to start from scratch looking for the info I need.

Thanks in advance

u can get Cm by setting it in 'monitor' dialog box...to get Cp, go to plots > xy plot > setup > pressure > coefficient of pressure....nd u got it.
