Hi all,

I'm a beginner of OPENFOAM and trying to learn InterDymFoam modifying FloatingObject. Now I'm trying to set a case that an object is initially in the air and drops to water.

I have changed:
1. topoSetDict : location of box
box (0.35 0.35 0.54) (0.65 0.65 0.76);
2. setFieldsDict : initial free surface is level
box ( -100 -100 -100 ) ( 100 100 0.4 );

Calculation stops at about 0.3s. I've tried to reduce deltaT to 0.0001 but still stops at below. Post-processing results up to 0.2s look okay.
I didn't change much except above and deltaT, hence, writeControl is adjustableRunTime. Please advise what I should try. Thank you!!
