Drag Coefficient

How can I determinate the aerodynamics coefficients(drag and lift) in a two-dimensional and three-dimensional body in Fluent 6.0?

Re: Drag Coefficient
In the menu Solve>Monitors>Force... you can select what coefficients do you want to report and how to do it: in the screen, in a file (with the name specificated where "c.-history" is showed), in a graphic, or combined.

Re: Drag Coefficient

If you want just the converged values go to the "report-forces" and print them.

Re: Drag Coefficient
I also used the same way like toutorial to slove the external flow of truck. But I can'nt get the right answer about drag coefficient (Cd<1). My case is 3d and unstructure mesh. Finally I got Cd using custom field function. I can'nt make sure that this is a right answer.
