Exactly how you do it depends on what version of Fluent you're running on. For v18, right click "Report Definitions" and create a new "Expression" for the C_L. For v17 it may be slightly different because they changed the process of how monitors are made.

Well then your best bet would be to export the lift data every 20 time steps, bring the "Lift.out" file (or whatever you named it) into excel, and make the C_L calculation in excel.

If possible, I would also recommend upgrading to a newer version of Fluent. It has many more options that make setting up simulations less painful.
