Default How to set a oblique incidence wave Boundary
Posts: n/a
In Flow 3D, It is easy to set a wave boundary with "LW" Boundary condition.But only three parameters can be input:Wave amplitude, Wave period,Phase Shift. With those parameters can only set a wave which is vertical incidence from the boundary, how to set a oblique one?

Maybe you can rotate the domain so that the wave would still be normal to that boundary, or you may do some customization to define the fluid height (fraction of fluid) and speed in the boundary cells.
