Hello,
Can anybody explain how the aerodynamic moment is calculated for an airfoil ? I was reading the first chapter in "Fundamentals of Aerodynamics" by Anderson & the formula for aerodynamic moment for the lower surface of the airfoil confused me. Is the aerodynamic moment calculated about some other point for the lower surface ? Thank you.
