Dear All,

I am modeling a dispersed flow in 2D in Ansys Fluent. I have no clue how does the Fluent compute the drag and lift coefficient of my solid body? I don't know if it takes the density that I specified in the materials or the reference value of the density or the mixture density in each cell? Can somebody please help
