Hi,

Do the three components of pressure, viscous and total moments represent the moments ABOUT each axis (x,y,z) or in the direction of each axis?

Thanks

Amy

Hi

If I understand your question correctly, pressure is applied in all directions. Viscosity is a fluid property. Only momentum has a direction.

Regards

Hi thank you for your response. I'm still confused however as I'm not sure if the x, y and z values given for each of the pressure and viscous components of the moments refer to the moment acting about that axis or in the direction of that axis.

Any more advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
