Default CFX-solver force monitor
Posts: n/a

I had solved my simulation and would like to monitor the force on the body, using 'CFX-solver > Monitor' option. I have 2 questions:

1)When i plot the force, say in the x-direction on the body', the plot's axis is variable vs. timesteps. The y-axis which is printed as 'variable', is that referring to the resultant force in the x-direction on the cylinder body?

2)Is the unit of the plot i just plotted for force in x-direction in Newtons (N)??

Thanks in advance, Maga
