Hi Foamers,

Now I am simulating a case with sixDoF dynamic mesh model (similar to FOAM_TUTORIALS/incompressible/pimpleDyMFoam/wingMotion/wingMotion2D_pimpleDyMFoam).

During the post-process, all I want is the curves between Angle of Attack and lift coefficient. But I have no idea about how to calculate the AoA in this kind of aero-actuated model.

Does any one have any experiences?
