Hi everybody,

I'm a new user of OpenFoam. I was trying to generate a wave using InterFoam but it's quit hard for a beginner! If somebody could give me some ideas that would be great

Dear Elvis,

Thank you for your fast answer and links. It's very helpful.. As I can see, I have to modify the solver absoluty to generate the wave? and not only set specific boundary conditions?

Hi,

waves2foam is a professional way "to do waves correctly", but you can do it differntly!
(i think you have to live with "reflecting boundary conditions" in that case if i am not mistaken)

See
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Co...yBC#User-Cases

4.2 User-Cases
4.2.1 groovyWaveTank

An example of using groovyBC to generate 2nd-order Stokes waves. It is designed to run with interFoam

=>you have to adopt the groovy part to swak4foam to use with todays OF-versions

also take a look at that commercial OF-solver IHFOAM http://ihfoam.ihcantabria.com/
=>so waves can not be that trivial, if we find commerical support for that area
OpenFOAM (IHFOAM) training for coastal engineering

disclaimer:
Im not using waves2foam of ihfoam etc. , I just know that ngj has build it,
and he gave his valueable contribution to the OF-community. And I read about ihfoam in the past
ngj and daouba like this.

Hallo,

Allow me to add that last time I talked with Hrv Jasak, then navalFoam had been linked to a slightly modified version of waves2Foam.

@Elvis: Thank you for the kind words, and no, waves are not necessarily trivial, but it depends on the type of the problem.

Kind regards,

Niels
