I have no good experience to aerodynamic analysis. I did some assignments in University days but I want to laern more and doing the validation as per given from here

However I first run at angle of 10 deg but I get very small Cl. I think I am doing some mistake in setup or calculation.

Few questions...
I read in books that in 2D, the lift coefficient Cl is per unit span length, so the equation for coefficient of lift is:

cl_2D=Lift per span length/(0.5 * rho * V^2 * C)

In 3D it is

CL_3D=Lift/(0.5 * rho * V^2 * A)

C is chord length, and rho and V are the freestream conditions and A is planform area..

Now, if I do 2D simulation in fluent, How do I calculate cl_2D coefficient in 2D manually using above formula? Is this Cl calculation would tally with the NASA validation data?

Sorry for my poor English, its not my first language

oj.bulmer will become famous soon enough
Lift/span in 3D should be equal to Lift produced in 2D simulation in FLUENT and the Cl data should match with results
