Unhappy ANSYS Fluent 2D flow over a cylinder (how to get displacement)

Hello everyone,

I'm simulating a 2D flow over a cylinder (FSI) using ANSYS Fluent. I have obtained the lift-coefficient (Cl) at Y-axis but unfortunately I wasn't able to get the displacement. Please could anyone help me with a formula or UDF I can use to calculate the cylinder's displacement at Y-axis?. Thanks!

NOTE: I used dynamic meshing and the cylinder oscillates at Y-axis only.

Lift-coefficient = 1.25
Diameter of cylinder = 48mm.
