Does any one know how i can calculate the Drag coefficient from total force in phoenics CFD of my 3 blade horizontal axis wind turbine ? When i'm trying to calculate from the output tab in domain settings, it is asking me to give the Reference area in X, Y and Z.

Blade length is 3 meter
total surface area is 5.86 square meters
No of blades 3
rotor area is 0.73+0.28 = 1.01 square meter.


Please also tel me how i can calculate moment and coefficient of power from phoenics?

would be grateful if you can also tel me how the power can be measured?

I'm using NACA 4412 airfoil.

Thanks

I dont know why they have made phoenics so difficult and proof is that there are 63 views on my thread without a single answer. There are no informative videos available on youtube about phoenics but you can find easily about fluent.
