Hi I am a student in university of british columbia . I want to know how I can model free surface in Fluent . For example one of the problems I counter at modeling the free surface is the two dimensional motion of a ship in water . Please let me know how I can do that . Thanks Mahmoud

Re: modeling of free boundary in Fluent Software
 
Your problem is similar to that of "unconfined flow past bluff bodies", In your case, the bluff body is nothing but ship. First, try to simulate a simple problem like flow past circular cylinder/square cylinder/rectangular cylinder. You can get bulk of literature on these problems. After validating your procedure for any of them, you can move on to your original problem.
