Basics : Wave Generation

This LS-DYNA simulation shows how to set up a simple wave generation problem using Stokes waves. This wave modelling is suitable in cases where the wave amplitude is small compared to the total depth of the problem. Otherwise, piston-type waves are preferred. A hydrostatic pressure condition has been set at the outlet in order to allow for some fluid to leave the domain. In addition, a damping layer close to the outlet has been defined in order to increase the problem's stability and to avoid reflection of the waves.
