Default Lift and Drag Coefficients Reliability

I am simulating some easy NACA 0012 performances (stall, cero lift, etc.) but the Drag and Lift coefficients Fluent computes don't fit NACA 0012 theoretical curves that I have.

Are realiable Lift and Drag coefficients computed by Fluent? Do you know why I get those wrong results and where my mistake could be?

Thanks in advance.

Luis

Hello did you adapted the reference values in the reference panel?

Hi Bob, thanks for your reply.

Yes, I changed the reference values. I tried many possible values for them, but any result I got was right.
