Hi All,

I'm relatively new to OpenFOAM. So far, I've managed to set up a wave tank using groovyBC in interFoam and I have found the sixDOFSolver in the dev version and the sloshingTank tutorials in interDyMFoam (-1.6).

However, I don't understand how I would go about implementing the six degrees of freedom on a floating object in my wave tank? Could anyone give me an outline please?

Thank you in advance.

Are you in the Boston area? I can show you a solution I cooked up.

Hi Cem and Tracy,

Did you already managed to get a nice solution? I'm working on a similar problem but my code explodes. Working now with OF 1.7.1 where I make use of interDyMFoam; seems not a very good approach :S

Looking forward hearing from you!
