Hi;

I am using CFX for ship resistance calculation. I got the value of Total resistance of KVLCC2 hull, and this value seems quite reasonable.

Now i want to get the free surface wave contous and Wave Profile along a hull. I made a free surface using isosurface but i dont know how to check wave contours on this free surface.

I also want to know how can i get wave profile along the hull.

Waiting for a kind response.

Thanks in advance

Generate a contour object, place it on the hull and put a contour of volume fraction = 0.5 on it. The contour will be the free surface height on the hull.
