hello,  I need as a solution, the deformation of a point(node) depending on the time and the drag and lift forces on a surface. I know that you can spend the lift and drag forces in the setup but not how I can find them again or look at me when I calculate an FSI problem. I thank you once for your help.

Are you asking for Fluid or Structural side? 

Best regards, Amine

I found out how to show the deformations and so on at one point.
All I need is the lift and drag forces at one point of the solid

Best regards

Hello Florian,

Are you looking help on how to monitor the lift or drag at one point on a surface? Generally drag or lift is calculated based on either a plane or line where surface area is measured. And Fluent gives us the drag or lift on boundary walls. If you want these values on a derived surfaces, you need to write the UDF.
