Hello all,

Could someone explain how the buoyancy forces are accounted for, in the interDyMFoam solver ? I'm unable to locate it in the sixDofmotion solver. It doesn't seem to appear as an external force in the UEqn either.

Also, in the floating object test case, is the mass in the dynamicDict, the actual mass or apparent mass ?
