Hi,
I've simulated two bodies free falling into water from a specified height, I want to extract the location of a specific location on the boundary patch and plot the displacement of that specific cell with respect to time. I don't know how i can do it.


Thanks for response

I've solved it bye creating a cellzone with the cell I want to track position and getting the position of that cell at each time step using coded function object.
