Hello all,

I'm currently simulating a case using 10 waves, (previously used 2 waves; using bichromaticFirst)

Previously it all worked fine, however I started using combinedWaves to simulate 10 waves,

Changes made from previous successful simulations
1) meshes (fined mesh at the interfaced level) - checkMesh OK!
2) inclusion of 8 other waves, using combinedWaves

Simulation able to run, however, I noticed it's taking alot of iterations for each time step, and running pretty slow, and when I returned this morning, it had clashed,

Any kind assistance is appreciated

problem solved,

error was due to mesh,

I increase the amount of mesh at the free surface block by 5 folds, maintaining a mesh size of 100 mesh even for the lowest wave height,

That wasn't a problem for 2D waves (since their combined wave heights are only 2.5cm)
