Good morning

My thesis focuses on the modelling of breaking waves using the LES (Large Eddy Simulation), to make I chose: OpenFoam.

So first before attacking my project, I must start by simulating the wave in a channel, of course always on OpenFoam, and as I'm new here and I do not have enough knowledge with this code , I BLOCKED !

So please, I'm looking for someone who could help me and tell me step by step how to introduce waves on OpenFoam, and establish my simulation.
Please, help me, it's urgent!

Thank you in advance.
