How can i get the normal and shear force on a wall?
hello, i am doing a 2D calculation result in the cfx.
I try to get the lift force and component of a cylinder. lift force is easy, i use force_y@cylinder because flow direction is jast to X. but i have problem of component, i want get force from normal pressure force and shear viscous force. at first, i use theta=atan2(Y0.005[m],X0.81[m]) to get the agree of point on the cylinder,[0.81 0.005]is the center of cylinder. for normal pressure force, i use areaInt(p*sin(theta))@cylinder to get it for shear viscous force, i use areaInt(Wall Shear*cos(theta))@cylinder in theroy, lift force=normal pressure force+shear viscous force, but i got (normal pressure force+shear viscous force) bigger than 3xlift force i have checked fluent and it show me same lift force. so i think some error about normal pressure force and shear viscous force can some on help me? and if it is unscrupulous object, how can i get component of lift force? 
Have you plotted the the theta function and checked it is correct? Also check the p*sin(theta) and Wall Shear*cos(theta) components are correct?
