 July 31, 2020, 08:09 How to convert a coordinate system into a position vector? #1 New Member   A. Mier Join Date: Jun 2020 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 5 I want to use this coordinate system's origin as the center of an object and then compute moments occurring on the faces of this object relative to the origin. For this I thought of multiplying the force vectors by the position vector resulting from this coordinate system. Is it possible to do this in Star CCM+?

I am dealing with an open channel flow where I am trying to compute the moments due to the hydrodynamic forces of the water. From my simulations I understand the built-in functions consider both hydrostatic and hydrodynamic forces, and I only require the hydrodynamic component. So I created a vector field function for the hydrodynamic force as explained on a different post in this forum. However, when it comes to the moment I am unable to get the right approach, so I thought that by multiplying this vector force by the position vector would give me the moments about the center of the object.
