I am trying to obtain a center of pressure of an axisymmetric body using ANSYS Fluent. It is a cylinder at 10m/s where the body is aligned with the flow (x direction). The origin is located on the symmetry axis on the surface of the cylinder (closer to the inlet).
I cannot understand why the results of center of pressure fixing y-axis (y=0) or z-axis (z=0) are different, moreover one of the results (fixing z=0) is outside of the body. Apparently the results of both cases should be the same, considering that the body is axisymmetric.

Best regards
