ThinkQuick is on a distinguished road
Hi all,

I am running a transient VOF simulation in 2D and I would like to obtain the amplitudes of waves I am generating due to a moving disturbance. I am able to obtain approximates by plotting a line along the x axis and then varying y to view where the volume fraction is 0.5, however I am sure there would be a better/more accurate way.

Any help would be appreciated.
