Default RE: Applying forces / Center of Gravity in CFX

I need to apply a moment and/or a force on a yacht to simulate the force of sails on the yacht. Is there anyway to do this in CFX? Also, how could I specify the center of gravity in CFX.

Thanks, Janusz

CFX is a CFD solver so does not impose forces and moments on bodies (well, until you start with immersed solids in V12 anyway). If you are doing FSI you implement it in the FEA side of the simulation.
