Dear all;

I just wanted to share with you a piece of code i wrote in OpenFOAM which can be used to see both the runtime and written force coefficients data for Pitch, Roll and Yaw coefficient which is often used for external aerodynamics. I don't know for who this will be useful, but I hope some one does. And if there is any bugs or mistakes please let me know.

I have uploaded the source code and make directory to My GIT and a sample control dict file as well.

Thank you.

But OpenFOAM has such functionality to my knowledge (at least .com): forceCoeffs.
Kind regards,

The OpenFOAM community is the biggest contributor to OpenFOAM; not person A or B. Let's report bugs or issue feature requests in GitLab-OpenFOAM.

Please `design` your questions well. Such effort always pays off well for inquirers and `helpmate`s:

How to give enough info to get help.
