How to see the impact of interaction in diffraction solution?

    • Medi


      I am modeling two flaps in ANSYS AQWA, as shown here. I want to see how the two bodies have impacts on each other. In the details of structure selection sub-menu in Hydrodynamic Diffraction, we can select Interacting Structure Group. I select both the flaps, but I don't see any change in the results. Could you let me know which aspects of interaction between two adjacent bodies can be observed in menu?

      Hello Medi If you look at the RAOs of your boxes or their pressure and motions, you should be able to observe differences in the results between your two boxes as well as the shielding effect of one box to the other one.
      Your boxes being identical, you might not see much differences in some of the data (depending on symmetry for instance).
      I hope this helps.
      Kind regards Ingrid
