Hi all!

Does anyone know details about OpenFOAM's makeFaMesh command? From my knowledge, it is sort of like the setFields command of interFoam. However, one difference seems to be the free surface is specified in blockMesh. A thesis here in appendix C, page 209, discusses some details, which I believe creates a rectangular flat surface, but how would you get something like a sinusoidal free surface for this case (since funkySetFields cannot work)?

Thanks for any help you have to offer!
