UDF for torque (easy)
Hi everybody,

Simple question. How can i get, using UDF*,the friction moment of a body rotating inside a fluid like a cylinder in water?

If the body is a sphere, how i can get the three forces and moments?

Via GUI is very easy just ask the report of the forces and moments in the three axes but with UDF i don't know how to do it. There's any routine for that?

* I need using UDF to automate the reading of the data by Matlab.

Thanks much to everybody!
