Only VOF option of Fluent provides this model. For wave propagation capturing, 3D simulation is better. I extremly recommend you that try to use a structure grid. With an unstructured grid I do not have some good results. Version 6 of Fluent is more better than old versions. I recommend you for first experience with VOF, that you model dam break. Some results about, are provided in litrature. regards

As Roozbeh said...If possible use the newest version of fluent (I've had troubles with previous versions).Go trough tutorial problem and then work your way up...you can find a "dam break problem" in CFD book of Peric...and probabilly an a web page of tu-hamburg (lab for ship technology - or something like that) A structured grid is a must here! Also a 3d problem (I really dont know how could you simplify this to 2D????) good luck MATEUS

Roozbeh i've lost your mail and also forgoten to answer your question...The value for "n" in turbulent viscosity modification was 10 in my case...(it is considered it should be between 6 and 20...). So your value 10^9 (or something) is way of... MATEUS

 October 24, 2003, 05:29 Re: Free Surface Flow for Ship #7 mateus Guest   Posts: n/a Hi! I think you can find some usefull information in: Azuceta R: Computation of turbulent free-surface flows around ships and floating bodies, PhD thesis, Technical University of Hamburg, Hamburg or: Azuceta R., Muzaferija S. Peric M.: numerical simulation of flow around blunt bow model. Proc. Workshop on Numerical Simulation of Two Phase Flows, Ship Research Institute, Tokio 2001 Hope it helps, Best regards MATEUS
