Hi sham81,

Have a look in the documentation. P103 in the solver files document describes how to calculate drag, lift and moments from your results. If you can't find it, go to the master index and look under "output files - interpretation".

From the forces you will have to calculate the coefficients yourself, but hopefully you should be able to sort that out.

Regards, Glenn
