how to plot the pressure coefficient distribution along the foil of the wetted flow
 
Hi, everyone,
I'm researching the simulation around the foil under the water. But I cann't plot the simulation result of the pressure coefficient distribution on the surface of the foil. Could you help me to solve this problem? the version I use is OpenFOAM-1.5dev.
Thanks very much!!!:confused:

Hi, if you want to calculate the Cp for later calculate Cl, Cd and Cm, you can do it very simply just adding a few lines in the controlDict file, otherwise I donīt know how to calculate the Cp.

Regards

DM.

i don't know much about openfoam but I had a similar problem in CFX and you know how it solved ?
I was writing a bad ECL code for pressure coef !jut be careful in writing capital letters in ECL code and dimension of your parameters ;)

Hi, sorry but I never used CFX.
