Hi all,

I am running a transient automotive Fluent case and would like to be able to plot Cd and Cl along the length of the vehicle. However, I can currently only work out how to calculate a singular, total Cd or Cl. One method I have read that has been done is plotting the cumulative drag over the vehicle which is obtained by summing the local drag contribution for each vehicle surface cell along the length of the car. However, I am confused about how to achieve this and whether it is possible in Fluent. Is there a method to be able to plot the coefficient of drag and lift along the vehicle's length?

Thank you very much.
