Hey! I am currently working on flow analysis over 2D airfoil in Fluent ansys... I am new in this programme so after a day of hard work I managed to make the simulation according to the youtube video even with changes of AOA... Now I would like to somehow extract lift, drag and and moment curve, or at least first 2. Does anyone know, if it is possible and how? or any fine tutorial would also nice. Thank you for you answers.
Is it possible to extract lift and drag curve from Ansys fluent?

Hello, thank you for your answer, I tried the following tutorial, bit I wasnt successful. Maybe the variable on x axis(position m) is wrong? also the values of cl are zero.... Do you know what could be the problem?
Hello, in the end I managed to did a bit differently via "reference frames" the lift curve looks fine now, I just dont really get the numbers on "y" axes... as usually the Cl numbers range from 0 to 1,5... Does anyone know why is it doing like this?
Coefficients are based on surface area etc, check the size of the aerofoil. There are a few aerofoil examples on YouTube, I suspect everything is explained in those.
Also to note, the time-step shows the change of the Cl with time on your model so I'm not sure what you've done to create that plot. Given it's still changing the solution hasn't reached a stable value so you need to run for much longer.
Hi MR rwoolhou,
I appreciate your answer on my question.
I am sorry I might explain the whole thing bad.. This is what I did: I am managed to do it according to one video on youtube
As my airfoil has chord line length 1 meter I guess its not too big surface area... I am really desperate with this, would you know where is the problem? If you need me to upload any screenshots, just let me know and I will.
Again thank you very much for you answer
