tjk0113 is on a distinguished road
So, I was remaking the NACA 4412 with the conditions given in ,

which should give a graph of pressure coefficient vs chord position like the one shown in

For some reason, my coefficient is different by a factor of 10; i.e, the coefficient pressure on the y axis on my graph ranges from -0.8 ~0.2.

I have assumed ideal gas and got viscosity using sutherland, and put every conditions to my fluent as listed on the paper. I am not sure why my pressure coefficient is all divided by 10. It would be really nice if somebody could guide me through here.
