Hi everyone,

I am having some issues with setting up wave gauges using waves2Foam. I am new to waves2Foam and I want to set up wave gauges in my case. I have done the following: 1. Copied the constant/probesDefinitions from the wave flume tutorial to my constant folder; 2. Added the following to my controlDict file:
Quote:
functions { #includeIfPresent "../waveGaugesNProbes/surfaceElevationAnyName_controlDict"; }
; 3. Added the command
Quote:
# Create the wave probes runApplication waveGaugesNProbes
to my Allrun file. However, when I run the case, I do not see a postProcessing folder or the expected wave gauge data. How can I correctly set up the wave gauge ?
My probesDefinitions, controlDict, and Allrun are shown below:

Quote:
FoamFile
{
version 2.0;
format ascii;
class dictionary;
object loggingProperties;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

surfaceElevationAnyName
{
type waveGauge;
libs ("libwaves2Foam.so")
pointDistribution lineDistribution;
N 3;
linestart (0.10 0.005 0.0);
lineend (3.2 0.005 0.0);
add ( 0 0 0.55);
axis z;
stretch 1.;

// REQURIED ONLY FOR NEW FUNCTIONOBJECT IMPLEMENTATION
writeControl adjustableRunTime;
writeInterval 0.025;
}

Would you like to do it step-by-step manually without Allrun?

May be you will be able to find the issue

Hello! I was a newbie to OpenFOAM at that time, but now this problem has been solved. thank you for your reply!

Dear wangwang,
I'm experiencing the same problem. Would you mind sharing your solution?

Dear edo2822,

I managed to resolve this issue by linking the wavesFoam library. You can do this by adding the following code to your controlDict:
Code:
functions
{
    libs ("libwaves2FoamSampling.so");
    #includeIfPresent "../waveGaugesNProbes/surfaceElevationAnyName_controlDict";
}
Please note that you should replace ‘surfaceElevationAnyName’ with the name of your wave gauge. I hope this solution proves helpful to you.

Hi wangwang!
Have you ever used the cnoidalFirst wave theory in waves2foam?
I'm trying to run a simulation with that and the setWaveFields fails.
I'll attach a folder with the log file and my setWaveField file if you have any clue!

Hi edo2822:
I'm sorry to tell you that I have never used elliptical cosine waves, but I see that you are using version 2206. Have you tried lower versions, such as 1912, I really don't know about gabc.
Good luck!
