Torque = distance x force

You will then have to choose the surfaces which contributes the pressure+shear forces. Torque is calculated by the integral of distance (from the point you defined in the moment dialog) times pressure over the surfaces concerned. Don't worry, this is done by the reporting tools of star-ccm+.
