I am trying to run a simple wing (symmetric, AoA=0) case with imported mesh from Ansys ICEM. When I use reference area=0 it should calculate reference are automatically, but it is calculating reference area as projection on z-plane rather than calculating on y-plane(which is actually the plane in which wing spans).

Is there a way to resolve this in SU2? or I have to change orientation in Ansys ICEM?

I am new to SU2 so pardon me if this is too silly. Thanks in advance.

sorry, for now you'll have to reorient the mesh. you might look in the mesh tools folder in the source for some python scripts that could be helpful doing this on the SU2 file.
