Forces in global frame for rotating domains? xGlobal?
 
Hi all,

I'm having some trouble determining forces in global frames in CFX 14.0. I have a rotating frame but want to determine all forces referenced to the stationary frame. However force_x, force_y etc are calculated in the local frame by default as per user manual, however even if I prescribe a non-rotating frame (i.e. force_x_Coord 2@...) it reverts back to the local rotating coordinates?

There used to be a xGlobal, yGlobal etc. CEL expression, but it has been removed as far as I can tell...

Any suggestions? What am I missing?

Regards,
