vikramaditya91 is on a distinguished road
I am trying to simulate a boat free-falling into water from air using the system coupling module of ANSYS Workbench where I have linked the transient structural module with the Fluent module. The initial velocity that I provide to the boat in the transient structural module is ignored and the initial velocity is always zero irrespective of what initial condition I give. However all the other conditions I provide to the boat (eg. Force, acceleration due to gravity, velocity, etc) are considered as entered.

Can anyone help me out with this. If I cannot give initial conditions through the transient structural module, can you suggest some other method of providing an initial velocity to the boat
