Hi all,

I am very very new to CFX, I want to simulate wave that is propagating towards an oscillating water column. I have tried to simulate it by using the "Immersed Solid" method and assign "Specific Displacement" to the wall that I want to move. However, the result is bad, I am only able to create a very very tiny wave.

I would like to ask how did u all set/ create water waves in a water tank?

IF I am using the "Inlet" boundary condition, what should i key in for the MASS and MOMENTUM..

Or how to assign the surface of my fluid to move as a wave?

Anyone could spare their setup to me?
