Hi FOAMers,

Currently, I use OpenFOAM to study aerodynamic shapes. I calculate my aerodynamic coefficients (drag and lift) with simpleFoam.

Is it possible to calculate the position of the aerodynamic center? If yes, how I can do that?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,
Rider.

Hi Rider,

Did you finally found a way to locate it? I am trying to do the same.
Apart from ploting the torque along the middle line of my model for different angles of attack and see for which coordinate I have a constant torque, I can't see other solution for now. But haven't tested it yet.
