Hello All,

I am currently using scripting in Fluent to perform runs on a cluster. However, the different 3D models I have the simulation calculating CL and CD for all have a different projected area.

So I know how to use text commands in a journal to output projected area in a unit vector direction, but the problem is this:

How do I tell ANSYS (via scripting) to take the calculated projected area and enter that value as the reference area?
