I have experimental data of torque for turbine wheel.
How to check the torque value in CFX Post result?

The Wheel domain is splitted in various parts such as blade, hub, tip etc..
Where exactly I have measure the torque so as to validate with the expt. data.

Thanks in advance

Have a look at the bits hanging off whatever shaft the torque sensor is on. The sum the torque around the rotation axis for all those bits.
