If this does not work, let me know what you see in the results.
Thank you for your reply,I used to set fluid height in the wave,and I did not set mean fluid depth there.I also set initial>add fluid>regionlimiters,
and I did not set>initial>volume option.As a result,it can produce wave some times.I want to see if this set is wrong.
Another problem is if FLOW3D can not produce some waves,especially in shallow water.I used to set ampitude=0.1,period=2,and (at initial>add fluid>regionlimiters)Z high=0.5m,it simulate well,but no waves at last.
would you tell me how to solve it?
