lift-coefficient
 
Hi, For a 3D turbine blade (constant cross section) what values of area, depth and length should i specify in 'Reference values panel' for the calculation of lift-coefficient. Many Thanks,

Re: lift-coefficient
 
Area should be your frontal projected area. Depth should be your thickness, and length should be your chord length of the blade, I think.
