Hi everyone.

I'm trying to validate my CFD model using results from A. Dunn, Aeropredictive methods for missile analysis, 1989. One of the results is the "Normal force curve slope". How would I obtain this as an output from Fluent? My understanding is that there is no normal force generated on a symmetric 'spinner' body at 0 AoA, so I am a bit confused and haven't found any good explanations online.
