Relate to moment coeffcient, we must choose correct reference values. I am using 2D model. Could anybody tell me how to choose correct these values?
Cm = \frac{M}{\frac{1}{2}\rho v^{2}AL}
So, in 2D problem, unit of these quantities are such as M [N], \rho [kg/m^{3}], v [m/s], A [m^{2}], L [m], correct?
For example: a rectangular with dimension WxH = 0.3 x 0.1m, rolling on calm water surface level 1.5m. What I should choose reference values for v, L, A...?

Hello,

if anyone can tell me , whether we need to change the reference values before starting the iterations in fluent.

The reference values which are already visible has the density of air while I am working for water as a medium.

It will be a great help if anyone of you can guide me in this. Thanks
