Regarding Breaking Wave Modeling

      Hi,

      I have to ask if Ansys has the capability to model breaking wave or not? I have an academic license that can't model breaking wave, if we will purchase a full license it can model it or not? Thanks!

      The open channel wave models are there to provide a boundary condition. If you want breaking waves I'd suggest multi-fluid VOF and you'd need to work out the boundary conditions for the waves and use sharp/dispersed to capture the continuous free surface and breaking zone.

      Thanks for your reply. But Ansys fluent is not approving my selected wave theory for the breaking wave modelling.

      Not approving (ie reporting the settings are out of range) or not working (won't allow you to run the model)? We have checks to ensure the settings are within the range of the model, I can't remember if they return a warning or issue an error.
