Propagation of Waves with VOF
Dear Colleagues We try to solve the problem of wave propagation on constant water depth using the VOF method of FLUENT 5.4 but we have not succeeded yet. We give as inlet conditions the U and V velocities as a function of time and a kind of wave is constructed near the inlet which "dies" out further downstream in contrast with the exact solution which gives unaltered waves of certain wave length in the whole domain.

I have the following questions (a) Can anyone verify that this kind of problems (propagation of upstream disturbances) can be solved with such a code ? (b) Has anyone worked with this or similar type of problem ? (c) Are there any publications with the application of FLUENT to these kind of problems

Thank you for your response
