hi everybody,
i'm trying to simulate motion using 6dof...
but fluent reports no force and there is no movement...
anybody knows what might be the problem?

DEFINE_SDOF_PROPERTIES(six_degs_of_frdom1, prop, dt, time, dtime)
real fx, fy, fz;
Thread *t;
face_t f;
real NV_VEC(A);

prop[SDOF_MASS] = 2;
fx = 0.0;
fy = 0.0;
fz = 0.0;
t = DT_THREAD(dt);

fx += F_P(f,t)*A[0];
fy += F_P(f,t)*A[1];
fz += F_P(f,t)*A[2];

printf ("fx = %f, fy = %f, X_fz = %f\n", fx, fy, fz);
prop[SDOF_LOAD_F_X] = fx;
prop[SDOF_LOAD_F_Y] = fy;
prop[SDOF_LOAD_F_Z] = fz;

Many thanks in advance!
