Hello,
I am running a simple wind flow simulation for a 25 inclined plane to find the force of lift to compare with what I calculated with a by hand.
The lift force I obtain using Fluent differs greatly and the values that it gives me are much below what it should be.

My setup:
20mph wind flow over a 1'X1' 25 degree inclined plane

Anyone have any suggestions for getting Fluent to output realistic values for forces?

Hi Maharvey!

Have you defined the lift in the Z axis? Because Fluent calculates the lift in the Y axis

Regards!
