I have been modelling a circular cylinder, of course unless the cylinder is rotating then there will be no lift, but I wanted to get the drag on certain parts of the cylinder, the only way I could do it was to model the cylinder in gambit with four sections of a circle. Then when I import it into fluent I can report the drag on any of the four faces or all of the faces. Of course if you want more parts then just divide the cylinder into more sections.

Hope this helps,
