I am a beginner.I want to generate the second order stokes waves by interDyMFoam.Now I use piston to generate the regular waves but i don't know where can i find the fomula of piston displacement.I just find the wave surface function and the potential function...by the way ,which file contains the continuity equation and the energy equation in interFoam?Thank you!
