Default Monitoring forces and moments
Posts: n/a
Ok... I know you can monitor lift, drag, and one moment about a principal axis... is there a way to monitor more forces? I'm running a 3D body, and I want to monitor: Lift, Drag, Pitch, and Roll... Yaw and Side force would be nice just to cover all the bases, but monitoring Pitch and Roll at the same time is what I'm looking for.

Anyone have any ideas?

I appreciate any help.

Thanks, Jason

I've never worked with UDFs. I was trying to avoid them (call me lazy), but it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to. Do you know of a tutorial or anything that could help me with this (not with being lazy, but with needing to calculate the loads)?

Thanks again, Jason
