Variable distribution over a Region
 
Is it possible in CFD-Post to plot out numerically (into a table or a variable) distribution of a variable (for example - Force) over a specific Region in a specific direction? For example in a wind turbine blade case I want to know force distribution over a blade in a lengthwise direction.

In other words, I want to build a Table or a Chart with the information that I can see as a Contour.

Force only exists when referenced to an area. I think you are looking for pressure (for normal forces), or shear stress (for tangential forces). It is trivial to plot these parameters on surfaces.
