Hi guys thanks for all the hints you gave me,now i can run rhoSimpleFoam solver and it gives good results, but now i have a new problem.
I'm triyng to test OpenFoam comparing the results it gives in naca0012 profile analisys, i need to calculate lift and drag coefficients but for the drag coefficient it always gives me zero.
When i run the application it needs transport properties so i insert the file in the constant directory maybe i need to specify some more files?

So i decided to visualize stressComponents but when i run this application it says that there is a dimensional difference between the two members of the equation.

Someone can give me some hints?

Probably the liftDrag app does not pick up your reference length and area correctly. You might need to have a look at the application itself and change its calculation.

I Mattijs i looked at the application and i saw that if i calculate the value

(pressureCoeff + viscousCoeff) & flowDirection)

two times before the return it gives a drag coefficient different from zero(I don't know if it is good or not but it's a value). otherwise it gives a value that seems to be casual
