How do I calculate lift and moment coefficients for an airfoil in 19.1 release?

      Any one tried that?

      Have a look for the aerofoil tutorials as it's done there: I think there's one on Raef's YouTube channel. The starting point is the Results section of Fluent (or there will be a function in CFD Post somewhere). 


      Please add which solver you're using in future questions as it makes answering them easier! You may also find the answer to your question by searching the topics, in this case it's been asked before.

      You have to go to the solution section and define the report definition, CL and moment. then in the report file or plot add these to plot and save in the file. After the simulation is completed you will have the Cl and moment.

      Thank you for your replies. I meant Ansys 19.1 version

      That's the release version: the solver should be one of Fluent, AIM or CFX?

      Fluent is the solver
