AdamAL is on a distinguished road
I've had some not-quite-satisfactory results for the interface sharpness using VOF and CICSAM. So I figured I would try coupling with level-set.

The model is an Open Channel with Wave BC.

But when initializing with Wavy, the level-set is still initialized to 0 everywhere. Also, it stays 0 after the first iteration, and then Fluent crashes.

I have tried with varius schemes (coupled solver, geo-reconstruct) and flat initialization.

What could I be doing wrong?
