murkas13 is on a distinguished road

I have already finished the calculation of my flow problem in Fluent. But now, I want to report the forces acting on some parts of my geometry. Then, I click on "Report" -> "Forces", choose the Force Vector and select the desired Wall Zones, and I obtain the net total force.

My question is: Which is the point of application of this force? In which point of the Wall Zone selected is this force acting?

I think it could be the Pressure Center Cp, but I'm not sure.

Thank you very much!
