airfoil 2D simulation: position of lift force on the airfoil
 
Hello,

I've done 2D simulation of an airfoil in Fluent 13.0. I can calculate the Cl en Cd as shown in several tutorials on the internet.

But I need the coordinates (position) were the lift force acts on the airfoil.
Can this be calculated in Fluent? Or how can I obtain the position?

many thanks!

Koen

Fluent can display moment (torque), then divide it by force and you will know the force arm relatively you reference point
