How can I use Linearized Morison on AQWA?

    i am studying engineerring. I am developing a project dealing with a spar-buoy wind turbine. I am doing some simulations about RAO (Response Amplitude Operators) using Ansys AQWA.

    I've imported a Parasolid geometry (created using Solidworks). The simulation on AQWA, using only diffraction and froude-krylov, was successfully done.

    Now i have to use the linearized Morison drag. I've chosen YES in the "Linearized morison drag" option, i've set up the irregular wave but when the program solve the system the results of RAO (diff+froude krylov) and the ones of RAO with Morison are the same!

    Can someone help me? Did i made some mistakes?

    Thank you!
