ANSYS Aqwa – Mud Layer Depth

      Hi everyone,


       


      In ANSYS Aqwa Theory Manual Chapter 9, the cable dynamics equations are solved with the help of a mud layer. In the text it is said that this layer has depth "z". Has it is written with the versor notation (^) I assumed this layer has always a depth of 1 [m], but what happens if I am working in [cm] or other units? Does it changes the depth so it is one unit of the whatever units system I am working with? Or is it possible to change the depth of this layer? 


      Thanks in advance

      I suspect it'll use 1m. If you run a test case how does it compare if you use mm and m (keeping the same sizes)?

      In the tests I've made it does not seem to make a difference the units I use so it seems the mud layer depth must be constant. I am assuming it is 1 [m] regardless of the dimensions of my model.


       


      Thank you for your time

      You're welcome, we don't have much AQWA experience in the community so need to rely on some of the non-staff members.
