Numerical Wave Tank

When using REEF3D’s numerical wave tank and Marine CFD capabilities, waves are generated on the inlet boundary based on wave theory by prescribing water level, velocities and pressure distribution. On the outlet boundary, waves are dissipated with the support of a numerical beach on the outlet boundary in order to prevent reflections.
