 July 18, 2007, 07:27 Calculation of lift and drag coefficients #1 Prachi Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I ma trying to calculate the lift and drag coefficient for a NACA0012 at different angles of attack. I have run and post processed the results which look great. But I am unable to figure out what variables to use to calculate the lift and drag forces. Any help in this regards would be highly appreciated.
