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.
