 January 2, 2011, 08:01 I want to simulate a Wave in the flume #1 New Member   mahdi Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 6 I want to simulate a Wave in the flume.. how should I define boundary conditions ? I mean in which direction should I define Flow?

Designate a mesh boundary a wave boundary, set the initial fluid volume in the domain using fluid height, use the same height at the wave boundary, set the wave length and amplitude - and you are good to go.

No, mesh should be defined in all three directions. What I meant is that in FLOW-3D surface wave generators are implemented as mesh boundary conditions and can be applied at any of the four mesh boundaries, xmin, xmax, ymin or ymax.

I chose X min ( LW ) but really i don't know what should I choose for X max ? in case of " continuative " the water dept decreased gradually. in case of " Symmetry " water turn back after it reach to the end of mesh. can u help me with that ? i need no decrease in water dept and continuant wave for example like a seaside.

 January 20, 2011, 04:55 #7 New Member   mahdi Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 6 thank you Stefmascio... but there is still dept decreasing..

 January 22, 2011, 00:50 #8 New Member   mahdi Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 6 Dear Stefmascio... When I did your suggestion for choosing the "Allow fluid to enter...” after running simulation the water dept start decreasing gradually and suddenly after 20 sec, new stream started coming into the flume with reverse direction, interfacing the waves and the incoming fluid cause an overtopping the water depth… so this suggestion might not be a proper solution.... do u have any other idea ?

 January 22, 2011, 21:43 #9 New Member   bejewel Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 6 Model Setup\ Numerics\Wave boundary conditioon then to choose: Eliminate net volume flux at wave boundary,or Include net volume flux at wave boundary. good luck!

 January 23, 2011, 03:08 #10 New Member   mahdi Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 6 Dear Bejewel ... there is no " wave boundary condition " in Numerics .... and really I could not fined any of your suggestions there.... thank you any way
