Dear Foamers

I would like to know what is the best way to simulate seakeeping in OpenFoam. I would like to perform a 2 phases (VOF), transient, turbulent simulation of a ship (6 DOF) facing waves.
  • Is the solver interDyMFoam the most appropriate to do that ? In particular in adapting the test case DTC Hull.
  • What is the goal of wave2foam ? If I understood right this solver is coupled to interFoam and allow proper waves modelling. I read many thing and I didn't find something which is clear for me.
  • Is navalFoam also a good solver for simulating seakeeping ?
  • For interDyMFoam the mesh is deformed according to the displacement of the ship. What happens if the displacements are too large (I guess solver will crash because of bad mesh quality - for example if the waves are higher than the emerged height of the ship )? Is it possible to remesh the case during iteration in order to avoid these problems ?
  • Is openFoam able to handle overset grids mesh ?

Thanks a lot for your help
