As i understand, there are two separate computations. if yes, then the fluid material will change, air in first case and water in second. when you define the material you select water from Fluent database,
Hope it works !

Hi,

I just posted on your other question about reference values, but I figured I'd answer here as well.

You should change those values if you are going to do anything with normalized coefficients. Reynolds number, and force and moment coefficients are calculated by fluent using the values you specify in the reference values area.

See fluent user guide section 36.10!

Good luck
