FaSe is on a distinguished road
I'm simulating a 2D vawt in ANSYS Fluent 16. I want to calculate drag, lift and momentum coefficients. I know that putting the correct reference values is very important BUT how can i calculate these coefficients all together in just one simulation. Because in the reference values, Length and Area are different for calculating "Drag, Lift coefficients" and "Torque coefficient".

Airfoil: NACA0021
Chord Length= 265 mm
Blade Span= 1.2 m

I appreciate any help.
