onurcanpiskin is on a distinguished road
Hello friends, I want to perform 3D aerodynamic analysis and obtain lift and drag values. I have a speed of 30m/s at an angle of 25 degrees. How can I define this in this section? Can anyone solve my problem?

Calculates lift, drag and moment coefficients by summing forces on
specified patches for a case where the solver is incompressible (pressure
is kinematic, e.g. m^2/s^2).


patches (body);

magUInf (20.68 9.64 0);
lRef 0.06067;
Aref 0.005032000;

liftDir (0 1 0);
dragDir (1 0 0);

CofR (0 0 0);
pitchAxis (0 1 0);
