That sums it up for a general external flow case, same principles apply for internal or any other kind of flow. Pick a wall, specify a direction vector, print/plot/write. Done. Ehm, yes.. and the Reference values. Those are used to actually calculate the values for the monitor. Basic procedure of setting the reference values can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...oomxjc8#t=459s

I have no idea then. Go through the checklist of all the settings, because if a force is being calculated and if you have reference values set up then the monitors should work. So, try to do a force report in the direction of the drag and lift force. If that doesn't work than your problem is outside my domain of knowledge :P
