Hello,

I am doing a 2D airfoil analysis in fluent and I would like to find the total force at a specific location on the airfoil surface. The force report gives the average force on any surface edge I define. I tried making a surface point but could not get an output force at that point. Kindly help.

Pressure times area equals force.
For a point on suface, it means there is no area.
So, you could only get the pressure at a specific point.
