    Hello guys,

    My simulation works but I can only see/plot the added mass force vs frequency diagram. I'm a novice at AQWA and I haven't found yet good tutorials on the web to learn it. How can I export the added mass of my structure ? I'm running AQWA 16.2 from Workbench.

    I will also need to export my damping matrix and the Froud-Krylov forces.

    Another question is related to the "Wave Directions" settings. When I change type to "Single Direction, Forward Speed", the forward speed is the speed of my structure or of the wave?! From the help I've understood that it represents the structure speed but it makes no sense for me.

    Thanks for the help!
