I am currently working on my thesis <Optimazation of a sailing catamaran> and I am using
CAESES for the parametric model and SHIPFLOW for the potential solver.
So far so good I managed to run shipflow without any errors. Now I would like to present
my results of the wave pattern and more specifically I want to export the data points of
a wave-cut curve.
Concerning the shipflow manual there is a build-in configuration for wavecuts under XPAN commands.
At first I tried to follow the shipflow manual ( with lwavec= [0.5] and dxwave= [0.01] )
but the result output file LWAVECUT was empty.
I have produced the wave-cut curve at y/L=0.5 by using a PlaneCut in the free surface object.
But I would like to have the data points of that 2d curve in order to compare it with that of the
initial design and i can't really figure out how to.
Could you please advice on how to proceed.
Thank you in advance
