Default 2D Wing Problem

Hi There,

I am modelling a power kite in 2D.

When I plot a graph of pressure coefficient along the upper and lower surfaces of the kite the values are out by a factor of 100 (+)

Anybody have any suggestions as to why this is? Or how to solve this?

Thanks, Rich

You should set the correct references value like surface, chord etc. Look under report/reference values. Luca
