How to extract "wetted surface area"?

If it is possible.


Suppose I have a cube which center is placed at the mean water level. How would I go about extracting how much of the cube is "touched" by water, especially if it was to undergo rotations etc.?

Kind regards


  • Hi Asalih,

    did you find a way to get what you looked for?

    I used the volume method on paraview as you told on another thread.

    Where you able to get number of wetted area for quantitative purpose?

  • Look at the volume parameter, when it touches water it changes value, compared to when it does not.

    Then you need to do a lot of tedious math, but then it should be good enough.

    Kind regards
