Force and Moment Coefficient Plot


Hi everyone,

I am simualting an airfoil at varying angles of attack. If I am to change the direction of air flow instead of manually changing the angle of attack of the the airfoil itself. How should I go about changing the force and moment coefficient plots ??

Example if I have freestream velocity of 51.45 m/s. I wish to simulate at around 10 degrees and hence my velocity in the x is 50.64 m/s and my velocity in the y direction is 9.093 m/s. My force coefficient plots would then change to look something like this??


Yes: please look at @DaleKramer discussion about my original project ‘Pandora Box’:
