How to get the regular wave as input to ANSY AQWA

    • nilo


      I am trying to verify the offshore wind turbine response in ANSYS AQWA and FAST. The problem is that when I add a regular wave in AQWA it gives me the responses of motion in a different phase which is due to the difference in wave generated in the codes.It seems the remedy to solve this issue is to run one code and then get the waves as input to the other code. 

      Does anyone know which code allows me to have surface elevation as input in ANSYS AQWA?


      Thanks in advance,

      What version are you using? If you are using let's say 192, can you run the following command in a command prompt and paste the output here:

      "%AWP_ROOT192%..Shared FilesLicensingWinx64ansysli_util" -checkout AQWAWAVE  

      Of course, if you are running a different version please change %AWP_ROOT192% accordingly
