How to get drag and lift coefficient in coupling system(FSI) on workbench

      It's an FSI simulation, so the usual report monitor in fluent may not be available. Is there any solution to obtain drag and lift force and coefficients? By the way, what is the default area for ansys to calculate the drag coefficient? Projected frontal area?

      Regarding the area, there are 2 ways of calculating Cd, you can chose frontal projection or you can chose the whole wet area. Both are acceptable but obviously would give different Cd values.

      You can still make force reports on any walls even if coupled to another physics.

      Then how can I see the plot? On the fluent window or the coupling window?

      In Fluent like usual.

      But there are no plots in Fluent after the calculation is done. How to view the results?
