Default Reflections from the structure

Hi Pablo

I am simulating the wave interaction with rectangular structure using olaFlow. In my simulation generated waves are spoiling due to wave reflections from the structure. Is there any ways to suppress those reflections. I am using cnoidal theory for 1 m wave height with 10 seconds period at 6m water depth.

Many thanks

Hi Sri,
I do not have enough information to even understand what or even if something is wrong. I suggest that you take a look at this thread before posting: How to give enough info to get help

What I do notice is that the waves are at 2.7 m water depth instead of at 6 m, so they are quite nonlinear.

Check out my new project: olaFlow --> The olaFlow Support Thread
