Hello foamers
I wonder what is lRef and Aref for a semi submerged rectangular body with 0.8*0.02*0.4 (x*y*z) dimensions (interacting with regular wave) in calculating cL and cD in forceCoeffs?

Hi amin.adibipoor,

Tobias Holzmann gives a very good explanation on his YouTube Channel. Please watch the Suzanne Series.

Good Luck
