I have successfully used the patchIntegrate utility to get forces, however I do not know the point at which the forces are acting(center of pressure).

It seems like a common enough problem to have a pre-made utility dedicated to it, but I have not found one.

Do I need to use some form of the sample utility to pull the surface values and integrate the pressure manually?

Thanks for the input!
