Hi all,

I am modelling the flow circulation around a marine turbine (2D).
I would like to know the lift and drag coefficients during a revolution. It's possible to have a .out file with Cd et Cl by the following menu:
Solution> Monitors> drag monitor ou lift monitor, than a surface has to be defined (it will be my blades) and the force vector X, Y and Z have to be completed. However, the turbine is rotating which means that the force vector is always changing with time....So I don't know how to get the variation of Cd and Cl.

Does anyone would have an idea?
