Hello All,

I am a new openfoam user looking to simulate hull resistance in calm waters using openFoam.

I am troubled with the data plot I have (Force_Plot) compared to the one i found online (OF_Force_Plot) both attached below.

Can see there is a huge difference is the forces data plotted in the x-direction.

Would like to understand why and which part i did wrongly.

Please feel free to leave your insights and discussions!
