Change the application pole of the momentum of a force.



Good morning everyone!

I am an aerospace engineering working on my thesis and i am trying to solve a little problem.

In the picture you can see an "aeordynamic" body. The CFD analysis gives me the forces and the momentums acting on this body. How can i calculate the momentum acting on the body with respect to O'? In particular, how do i find "R"?

Thank you very much to everyone!

R depends upon the shape of the body. Since you have drawn it, I presume that you know the shape.


For every point, there  is an R, and the moment with respect to O is simply the sum of the R x F contributions.
