Hi !

I've done a 3D simulation of a wing with simpleFoam.
Now I will know how to find the point there the lift is centered.
I have used patchIntegrate to know how much the lift is,
but I also need to know where.
I don't find any thing about that here in cfd-online.

Does any one know how to treat this problem ? I will be thank full for answer!
