Center of Pressure
 
Hi All,

I would like to calculate the center of pressure (X,Y,Z) of an object using CFX-Post. How to do this?

X = areaInt(X * Pressure * Normal X)@surfacebody / areaInt(Pressure)@Surface Body Y = areaInt(Y * Pressure * Normal Y)@surfacebody / areaInt(Pressure)@Surface Body Z = areaInt(Z * Pressure * Normal Z)@surfacebody / areaInt(Pressure)@Surface Body

This give unrealistic values........

Thanks, Astrid
