Extract time history of pressure on surface of moving object in Fluent

      Hello,


      I have a two-phase simulation of a wedge shaped rigid body falling into water. I want to obtain the time history of pressure at a single point on the bottom of the wedge. I cannot simply probe an XYZ location as the wedge is moving over time. I have also tried defining the point by using a node number, but due to the dynamic mesh, the node numbers change over time as well. I have tried using dynamic meshing both with and without the remeshing feature, but either way the node numbers get changed over time. Is there any way to get around this issue.


       


      Thanks

      You might have a look into the portal as ASC for some solutions. In R1 we added the possibility to create additional reference frames bound to zones.
