Default turbulence models - lift and drag

Posts: n/a
hi, im a new fluent user and im doing a project on turbulence modelling. To validate the tests i am carrying out i'd like to compare them against the equations for lift and drag. However, i cant find how to get fluent to report these forces anywhere. I know its a bit of a silly question, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

u shall use monitoring/Forces in the case that u want to visualize the evolution of this forces during computation!

I think the most appropriate in your case is to use

/report> wall-forces

it's very easy

yours, Mohamed
