Plotting Surface Pressure around an Airfoil
Hello, first time using Star CCM+, I'm a second year and I'm currently looking into an inverted airfoil in ground effect. I wish to plot the coefficient of pressure against x/c (distance along airfoil / chord) to observe the suction zone underneath the airfoil. How can I do this in Star CCM+? Is there a way I can select the airfoil boundary and plot the pressure acting upon it?

Cheers, Ben

I've not done this first hand but you should be able to do it by creating a new x-y plot, then choosing the surface you want and plot pressure against position along the surface
