Exporting results water level AQWA
Hi all,

I try to model a floating breakwater as a floating structure (pontoon shape) in ANSYS (14.0), AQWA. I am mostly interested in the motion of the structure and at the surface elevation (wave heights) at the lee-side of the floating structure.

When I run the model with a fixed structure (no movements) or with 6 degrees of freedom the wave heights at the lee-side are satisfactory. But how do I extract the surface elevation elevation from the program? I would like to know for each grid cell what the surface elevation is.
