6.1 Contrib/waves2Foam

The library waves2Foam is a toolbox used to generate and absorb free surface water waves. Currently the method applies the relaxation zone technique (active sponge layers) and a large range of wave theories are supported and the relaxation zones can take arbitrary shapes.

The library also comes with pre- and postprocessing utilities tailored for use for free surface flows within the fields of coastal, marine and maritime engineering.
