False results wave impact
Dear all. I am trying to model wave impact on an L-shaped wall: a vertical wall with an overhanging part. Even though the wave height is correct, the model returns false results. I should observe one peak, followed by oscillations instead of multiple peaks. I included the outcome of the model and the result of the physical experiment. I think it has to do with the boundary formulation and the resulting gaps. The particles bounce too much resulting in multiple peaks and the unphysical behaviour. Anyone an idea how to improve the model? I tried varying many parameters without any luck. When removing the overhang, the results match the experiments done with a simple vertical wall. I placed the probes at 1.5h from the wall as advised.
