As my domain has a geometry that has translational periodicity I have used a domain interface (with a pressure change of -1.044664 Pa). The dimensions of the domain are 49.267 mm (longitudinal direction) 160mm (height of the domain) and 800 (it`s the width of the channel). I have a rough bed (with an inclination of 8.9*10^-4)formed by the contour of triangles (with an height of 4.61 mm). The initial expressions that I have used are the same as the tutorial (as I want to have an uniform regime I set a UpH and DownH to 0.12 m) and I have used the same boundaries presented in the tutorial (inlet, outlet opening and wall). I have not used a symmetry boundary because the mesh is not symmetric. Observing the results in CFD-Post I have the feeling that I don`t have an uniform regime. When I create an isosurface (water volume fraction of 0.06) the free surface is very irregular and the green line that should appear is not continuous. I also have water for higher water volume fractions...Should I create a larger domain to have an uniform regime? Best Regards

However, I think my main problem is solved. I have created a monitor point and I have seen the water volume fraction evaluation along the simulation and it seems that this variable is constant when I achieve a significant number of iterations so I suppose I have an uniform regime... Best Regards
