Thrust and torque of a propeller
 
What is the easiest or most common method of determing the thrust and torque for a 3D propeller (my first CFD 3D experience). This was modelled using a rotating reference frame and periodic boundaries.

Thanks in advance,

Alex.

Report->Forces

That will output both the raw force and the coefficient. If you're working with coefficients, make sure you've set your reference values in Report->Reference Values.

Hope this helps, and good luck, Jason
