Default Open channel flow

Hi every body!

In Vof model, when I activate open channel flow option for inlet boundary condition I must choose "pressure inlet" or "mass flow inlet".I did it but I get wrong answer,the real head of water which is determined would not form.

Maybe my mistake is in the inlet boundary options as in open channel flow options,In the fields "free surface level" and "bottom level" I put "the height of water" and "zero(bottom level of channel)". Is this true?(what is ylocal=-(a.g) in the manual?)

Many thanks
