Hi REEF3D Team :

I tried to use SFLOW to make regular wave in a long wave tank currently, but I found the wave would decay in the spatial domain when it was propagating.
Before I asked this question, I had tested A 210 to 242. Unfortunately, the problem persists.
How can I solve this problem?

Best regards,

Hi Yu-Jan,

the problem is that SFLOW does not support a non-uniform mesh and B 2 confuses it a bit - sorry, this probably does not become clear from the documentation, we should update this.

In any case, for the control.txt use the following:
C 11 6
C 12 3
C 13 3
C 14 7
C 15 21
C 16 3

B 1 0.1
B 10 0.0 1650.0 0.0 0.1 0.0 5.0

M 10 12

Still, SFLOW is probably not the best for this task (even though kd is only 0.5), e.g. FNPF would be much better at this.
