Output Monitors: Rotation angle of an object!
 
Dear CFXers,

I'm working with the AMP remesh method for the modelling of submerged bodies undergoing translation and rotation motions.

I've been successful for translation motions, e.g. using:
areaAve(Total Centroid Displacement X )@Body

However, i've been unable to monitor the angle/rotation at all.

Any help or tips is highly appreciated =)!

Just to add more info,

The monitors are for the euler angles (pitch,roll, yaw)

I am aware that when coupled with the Rigid Body solver, i can use rbstate(Euler Angle X)@Body for roll angle.
