Hiya!

In CFX-post I don't understand what represent the variables "Force X, Force Y" on my airfoil: is it just on one element of my mesh?? certainly... And so how can I calculate the total Force on X and Y axis ??

I am sure the answer is quite easy for a lot of you, please can you tell me it ??

Many thanks!

ok I have found how to sum the force X and Y to have the total force... Unfortunately it gives me a very bad drag coefficient in comparison with experimental data
