I'm a beginner of waves2foam.
I have a question for waves2foam running.

"How long the relaxation zone be set? Now I have set the length of the relaxation zone to twice the wavelength. Is this appropriate?"

Please recommend any references related to this issue.

Hey Jea-Sun,

in this paper

Huang, L.: An opensource solver for wave-inducedFSI problems. University Collage London, 2017,

it is said that the inlet relaxation Zone should be one wavelenght and the outlet one a half.
