I am finding drag and lift on ahmed body.
I wanted to know that in which direction does the value of lift coefficient(Cl) is calculated by the software?
Let say flow is along +X direction. So lift is calculated in Y or Z direction?
How do i find out in which direction my software gave me the value of Cl?

Hi, see attached picture.
You need to set the force vector in the monitor panel; in the attached picture lift is acting in +Z direction, so set the vector to 0,0,1, in +Z direction.
Google is your friend and the same for the search button!
