I'm going to perform time response analysis on my FPV model and I read in the manual that the wind force acts at the specified CoG of the model. My CoG is at (-24.265, 18.96, 0.4) which is indicated in the figure below but the wind force is pointing at the origin (0,0,0). Is this just a visual bug or is there a way to transfer the arrow so it will pass the structure CoG?March 30, 2022 at 12:24 pmMike PettitAnsys EmployeeYou are correct that the wind force is applied at the structure CoG, based on the relative wind velocity and the Wind Force Coefficients that you should have defined for the structure.
Regarding the arrow indicating the wind direction, this is just Aqwa Workbench graphics - there is no way to change the position of the arrow, but if you would find it useful to have an option to draw it over the CoG then I can certainly look at including this for a future release.
