 August 1, 2015, 01:20 rigid body force #1 New Member   armin najarian Join Date: Aug 2015 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 2 hi. i creat a rigid body in cfx and i want to give it a special harmonic froce in rigid body's ceter of mass. the problem is that my rigid body moves and i dont know how to set this force that always be in the center of mass. (my problem is transient and the rigid body should move with this force.) thanks a lot

Any images or details would be helpful.. armin najarian likes this.
