Hi OpenFoamers,

This is my first post on this forum. I am new to OpenFoam, using it for around 3-4 months now.

Is there any way to track the position of centre of mass, or one point on object that is moving in simulation in OpenFoam.

Thanks for reading.
Regards,

Nikola

Just found a way, there is a soution in paraView, there is an option for tracking of movement of a point on object.
