Default Including Thrust (Rocket Exhaust) Forces in Fluent's 6-DOF Solver

jbo214 is on a distinguished road
Is there any to have Fluent include the 'thrust' force from a rocket nozzle when it computes the forces on the rigid body when using the 6 degree of freedom solver?

As far as I can tell, Fluent only calculates pressure and viscous forces on the wall zones, but does not include any forces generated by a rocket nozzle.
