Hi all,

I would like to know if is possible to get a Drag or Lift force not coefficient in a unsteady simulation. I would like to get the force monitor against time through the simulation. Is that possible?

You can use a custom field function to define the lift and drag. once you have defined these forces you can do anything with them, save them, plot them etc. Hope this is what you wanted
