Does any one know how i can calculate the Drag coefficient from total force in phoenics CFD of my 3 blade horizontal axis wind turbine ? When i'm trying to calculate from the output tab in domain settings, it is asking me to give the Reference area in X, Y and Z.

I'm a bit confused about calculating area along X,Y and Z axis. can any one help me on how i can find the area ?

Blade length is 3 meter
total surface area is 5.86 square meters
No of blades 3
rotor area is 0.73 square meter.

would be grateful if you can also tel me how the power can be measured?

I'm using NACA 4412 airfoil.

If any one wants my model of turbine , i can send the solid works file for his/her simulation (through email). furthermore even if anyone can tell me how can i find the areas along x, y and z-axis of attached blade , than i would be grateful. I also would like to know how can the lift be calculated in phoenics.
