Default Airfoil computation
Posts: n/a
I have done simulation on 2D airfoil. coefficient of lift and drag are known.Is it possible to compute Torque generated from cl & cd or is there any other option in fluent which calculates torque generated.Also will the same method will be used if we compute for 3D airfoil.

In report-force, you have "moments", it is the torque from lift+drag around the point you imput the coordinate.
