Default SOLAVOF Sample Test Problem

I am rewriting the original SOLAVOF Fortran program in C++, but encouter a problem. I try to simulate the same sample test problem in the report (undular bore calculation) in page 44. All parameters are the same (NMAT=1).

QUESTION 1:

At t=0 (page 46), why U[1][7] = 0.2? Since F[1][7] is 0, why U is set for an _empty_ cell at t=0? The SETUP routine initialize U [i][j] only when F[I][J] > 0, so it's unlikely U[1][7] is set by SETUP. I've checked BC subroutine too, but it does not set U[1][7] either.

QUESTION 2:

The input FLHT (horizontal free surface height) is 1.0f, and del_y of mesh is 0.2, the fluid should occupy the bottom five rows: I=2~6.

At t=0 (page 46), before anything started, why F[1][6] is not 1 but 9.99999E-01?
