Default How to calculate hydrodynamic forces?

Hi all,

I m working on a multiphase maneuvering problem and trying to obtain forces and moment acting on the ship with a drift angle, however, as far as i know the default 6DOF body forces obtained in Star CCM+ includes also hydrostatic effects. I just want to get only hydrodynamic component according to the ship local axis.

My question is; how to write a user define function to obtain this component?

As you see below, the forces and moment due to fluid flow are calculated with using the static pressure. Is it possible to change it to dynamic pressure? Please any one there could explain. Any reply would help me.

Thanks in advance.
