CFD Tutorial of waves in open channel flows
You can download a free step format of a 3D fluid domain as used in my Youtube CFD tutorial. The model is not copyrighted and permission for reuse is granted.
A full Youtube tutorial video about waves in open channel can be found on my Youtube channel. I used this geometry to create a full CFD tutorial using the volume of fluid model – VOF. I used the pressure based solver in addition to the K Epsilon model to simulate the generation of waves in a channel. You can watch the full video by clicking on this link: Video.
I activated the numerical beach treatment option in Fluent ANSYS. Furthermore, when I activated the Volume of fluid model you notice that the implicit formulation activates instead of the explicit option. I used a low-resolution mesh in this CFD tutorial due to the limitations imposed by the academic version of FLUENT ANSYS.
