Computing aerodynamic coefficients on bidimensional sections in 3D problems
 
Hi everyone,

I have a problem calculating aerodynamic coefficients in a 3D simulation. I mean, the problem is a tridimensional one, but I need the value of the coefficients on a meridian line of the body I am studying (that is essentiallly an ellipsoid).

Is there a way to compute the value of aerodynamic coefficients on a line of a body using FLUENT? The only thing I know is that is possible to compute the value of the pressure coefficient on different sections of a body, starting from Fluent data and using Tecplot, but is it possible to do the same with lift, drag and moment coefficients?

Thanks everyone for the help you could provide.

Regards,

Aragon
