robin781105 is on a distinguished road
Dear expect:

I have a question that want to ask, the description might a little long, hope someone who can help, please.

Here is a rectangular channel like figure(1), these is two 1m width wall at the side, with a 20C water and no roughness at side wall.

I give a steady flow about 1400(cms) from the left boundary through this channel then outflow from right boundary

Then use two methods to make meshes, first is to make meshes without blue wall ( fig(2) ), another is two make meshes include wall ( fig(3) ).



Then cut the downstream cross-section and watch the Y-Z 2D free-surface plot( fig(4) and fig(5) )



Obviously, method-1's free surface plot is very smooth, but method-2's plot has a drop at right side.

Could some answer me why these two plots are different? Cause I have closed the wall roughness so there might no drag.

Hope someone could help me, thank you so much.
