Question Force/moment term on a wall with dynamic mesh

taalf is on a distinguished road
Hi everybody,

I am simulating a boat with interDyMFoam. Everything works fine, but I could see that not simulating propellers makes the boat pointing its nose down. I need to simulate somehow the moment exerted by propellers on the boat. (The best for me would be to specify a user-defined force or moment on the patch before calling the mesh-motion solver.)

Has anybody an idea on how to do?

Thanks for answers,
