Default problem with torque using sixDoFRigidBodyMotion

Dear all,

I'm using waveDyMFoam solver with sixDoFRigidBodyMotion option, to study a rotating device moving in water.
I would impose a constant torque to the shaft: I added the line with torque string in the "dynamicMeshDict" file , but it seems that the defined torque is used only as an initial condition and not as a constant value imposed.
Anyone know the reason of the error and how to fix it?

Many thanks in advanced.

I think it should be defined under entry 'Restraints'.

However I am not sure how to make the resistant torque constant.

Hi everyone,

I am having a problem using matlab in openvibe. I followed the steps mentioned in the tutorial but still getting an error.

For example, when trying to implement tutorial 2, this is what I get.

What do you think??
