Periodic Boundary Condition For lateral Boundary

Hi, Everyone,

I read the new article from DSPH team with title of "A numerical study of a taut-moored point-absorber wave energy converter with a linear power take-off system under extreme wave conditions". according to the model, the periodic boundary condition used for lateral boundary? I'm very grateful if someone help me to implement this boundary in my model? I cant find the example in DSPH about this boundary.

Best regards,


  • It is just one option you need to enable under Parameters.

    <parameter key="YPeriodicIncZ" value="0" comment="Increase of Z with periodic BC in axis Y" units_comment="metres (m)" />

    Please note that it is not only periodicity. They have also clearly marked multiple damping zones.

    Kind regards

  • Dear @Asalih3d Many thanks for your helpful response.
