Hi Foamers,

Has anyone had problems with forceCoeffs in OF-1.6.x ? I am using "type forceCoeffs" and have included the 2 new keywords, but when I run the case I get only standard non-Coeff force output - the headings are pressure/viscous, not Cd/Cl etc.

Thanks for letting us know. Actually you will find that only the header is inconsistent, the values should be the force coefficients not the forces. I will push a fix for the
header today.

Thanks Henry for your quick response. Yes indeeed it is only the headings that are incorrect - I should have recognised that the numbers looked strangely familiar .

Regards
Richard
