Hello,

I am trying to find the center of pressure of an airfoil with Fluent, but I cannot see any option which could enable this...

Could someone help me ?

Many thanks

Regards

You have to calculate it yourself from the pressure distribution calculated by Fluent.

That's crazy... Fluent is such a huge software !!

The only way I found until now is to calculate the Cm from (0,0) to (1,0) and mark the point where Cm=0.... that's long and not very accurate !

Thanks for your answer

Upgrade to Fluent 6.3 it has it in the report/force panel. Otherwise look for a UDF from your Fluent Support Engineer, or write your own.
