Hi, anyone knows how to get the pitching moment in cfx-post? i can set a monitor at cfx-solver (and get the value that way) but i can't seem to find it on the post processor. i'm using cfx v11, had no luck with the manual, but i'm sure there's a way..

Hi,

You can get it from the torque functions. You might need to do some simple mechanics to move the torque axis. If I remember correctly pitching moment is usually referenced to the 25% chord point, but the default torque functions in CFX reference torque to the coordinate origin.

thank you Glenn, and i can actually define a new coordinate system to calculate torque about any point.
