Flow over a cylinder.

I am simulating a 2-D flow over a stationary cylinder to determine the Cl and Cd over the cylinder. My question is in the lift coeff formula i.e Cl=F/(0.5*density*U^2 *Area), the area is the projected area i.e length*diameter or the surface area (2*pi*radius*length) ???
Also what values should I put for Depth, Enthalpy, Ratio of Sp. heat in the reference values tables ???
Is the depth same as diameter of the cylinder ???

check especially 2d section.
Formula for Lift coefficient doesn't involve Enthalpy etc.. so you are not suppose to set those parameters
