I am trying to run a simulation of a truck with moving wheels. The Model has already been simulated using stationary conditions. Could any body how to ffind the exact coordinates of the wheels in the geometry.

just use the new coordinate system tool in tools to create a new cylindrical system by clicking on 3 vertices around one front wheel. do same for rear wheel. now add tangential velocity to the wheel boundaries in the correct coordinate system
