Summary0003141: Moment calculation defaults to Zero Centre of Rotation, rigidBodyDynamics
Descriptionin OpenFOAM/src/rigidBodyMeshMotion/rigidBodyMeshMotion/rigidBodyMeshMotion.C : 282

forcesDict.add("CofR", vector::zero);

The Centre of rotation seems to default to vector::zero in contrast with the older sixDoF library ( OpenFOAM/src/sixDoFRigidBodyMotion/sixDoFRigidBodyMotionSolver/sixDoFRigidBodyMotionSolver.C: 223)

forcesDict.add("CofR", motion_.centreOfRotation());
Additional InformationPresent in 4.x, 5.0, 5.x, dev versions
TagsNo tags attached.

What is the consequence of this difference? Which do you prefer? Do you have any cases which show a difference in behavior? Steps to reproduce etc.?

Let's say I have a simple blade whose hub or centre is located at a point (5,5,5) and I am computing the rotation from the moments (Torque) (1-DoF motion). With a zero centre of rotation, the moments would be incorrect. Instead, the moments have to be calculated w.r.t the point (5,5,5).

This all depends on the coordinate system used. Please provide equivalent cases which demonstrate a difference in behavior.

Please open another report when you can supply a case which demonstrates the issue.
