Halooo ))

I need to created a floating object inside a wave tank.

Now I have the tank in waveFlume tutorial in waves2Foam with wave coming from inlet and going out from outlet. I am trying to put a floating object in the middle of the tank. I tried to compared the tutorial floatingObject in interDyMFoam with this tutorial and put in new files that waveFlume doesnt have.

Do anyone have any idea maybe how this can be accomplished?
I got stucked by this for several days and it drives a bit crazy now ><

Any help will be really appreciated !

I have the same problem. How did you solve that?
I input the dimension of the floating Object in topoSet but unfortunately the paraFoam did not show any object in my flume. I do not know how to input the box.
Best Regards
