Hi everyone,

I need the aid of the experts.

Im simulating a water tank as a wave generator.
I have calculated the wave amplitude at different planes (0.5m, 1.5m, 2.75m from the entrance) and:

1. Its lower than it should (it should be 1,65m high)

2. Its lower as the plane is far away from the entrance

COuld anyone advise me, please??? Could it be the mesh, the advection scheme, the turbulence????

Thanks in advance
