Wall Forces
 
Hello,

I was wondering how to find the forces on the walls of a wave tank. I will have two densities so that i can use the forces utility.

I was also wondering if there is any easy way for me to convert my mulitphase problem into a single phase problem? Im doing a sloshing tank and dont really care about the water and the air mixing... then i could use the forces function.

You could have a look at interTrackFoam from 1.6-ext (that is a surfaceTracking solver. There IS a sloshing tank tutorial). But I'm not sure whether exchanging a multiphase-solver for a moving-mesh will make your postprocessing problem that much easier
