Default Lift & Drag forces from Transient Analysis
Posts: n/a
If I run a transient analysis, how do I get the force to use for calculating the drag and lift coefficient, since the force change with time ?

Either post-process it in CFX-Post for each transient result file you saved or set up a monitor point with a function like force_x()@surfacename and when you run the simulation you can access the forces in Solver Manager.
