Default How to simulate a sea wave striking a ship antenna
Posts: n/a
Hi all!

These days I am facing a new problem. The question is easy: how would you simulate with Fluent (if possible) a sea wave striking a ships' radio-antenna =)?

I now the pressure specifications on the antenna due to the impact of the wave, but I do not know really how to set up the problem. I have thought in simulating a sea water flow passing by the antenna at a velocity that matches the desired smashing pressure, but I am not really comfortable with this approach: I am not really sure if there is a better way to do that.

Is there any possibility to do this without having to do multyphase (air-water) unsteady (smash on the antenna) flow (I do not have any idea on multiphase nor unsteady cfd sims :P)?

thanks in advance to all!
