Does Ansys give real Lift values for model?
 
I am simulating an aircraft but the problem is the lift force in newtons is half what it would take to lift the aircraft in real life.

However the cl value is fairly realistic.

My question is does ansys fluent correctly give the lift force value or is that just used to calculate cl and my cl and cd numbers are good and thats all im after really.

Any help will be appreciated.
