Issue with viewing cross-section of Combined Eulerian-Lagrangian anlysis

Issue with viewing cross-section of Combined Eulerian-Lagrangian anlysis

Hi there,

I created a model of a boat hull being dropped into water from a certain height and am currently looking at the results.

The eulerian fluid domain is half-filled with fluid and half-filled with void, and the boat is placed just above the fluid surface and given an initial velocity.

In the Visualization module, I apply the 'EVF_VOID' cut view to hide the void eulerian elements and view the free surface. The problem comes when I want to view a cross-section of the model (X,Y or Z plane) while still hiding the void with 'EVF_VOID'.

When I try to apply both 'EVF_VOID' and a planar cut view simultaneously, eulerian void elements are only removed from one side of the planar cut view, which is not what I want. I want to hide the void, then apply a planar cut view to the remaining fluid. Described the other way round, I want to apply a planar cut view, then hid what void elements remain.

I have attached a PowerPoint with images of the fluid domain to clarify the issue. I have excluded the boat from the images for IP reasons.

I have tried using the 'Display Group' --> 'Result Value' to hid the void, but it hides whole elements, meaning that I can't properly visualize the surface of the fluid.

Would anyone have any tips or pointers?

Thanks in advance,

Would anyone have any advice for me?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Feel to ask for clarification if I didn't explain my problem clearly enough.
