I am modeling a body like a flap with ANSYS AQWA (2021-R2), as shown below. When I get the results, i.e., added mass, radiation damping and wave excitation coefficients and plot the results, it seems the solution is respect to the center of gravity, which is at the centroid. However, I need to find the results respect to the bottom edge. Could you let me know if it is possible to set a new reference point for the results and observe them? Could we do it in the main menu?March 17, 2022 at 12:00 pmIngrid MacheclerAnsys EmployeeHello Medi Just add a connection point under the geometry item in your tree (check the Users' Manual document for more details).
Then in the results, you can select this connection point.
This is where the results you selected correspond to.
I hope this helps.
Kind regards Ingrid

I have a connection point in my model as you can see in the figure below. In the details of the connection point, Include in Results is selected Yes, however, I cannot see how to select the connection point in the results. There is no option for the reference point as I see. Could you show me how to select the point corresponding to which I can see the results?
