Hi all,

I am modelling wave in order to see the coupling effect of current inflow . It seems to me that the way to do so is to place Mass Momentum source for the current flow and generate wave from the inlet boundary.

The problem I am experiencing is- time step starts with extremly small value and finally it ends with pressure convergence issue within few seconds of the wall clock time.

Simulation at present is such that Mass Momentum source is a 3D plate like window at a distance from the inlet where the wave is coming from.

Any hint or comment for the workaround would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
