Summary0003087: wave simulation crash if inlet speed is lower than wave velocity!
DescriptionIn the cases that wave speed defined at inlet is lower than calculated water particle velocity (calculated from wave parameters) solver will crash after some iterations. For example a case setup as bellow where wave speed defined to be zero and water particle velocity at surface can be calculated (analytically) as 0.7 m/s:
        type waveVelocity;
        origin (0 20 0);
        direction (1 0 0);
        speed 0.0;
                length 17;
                amplitude 0.4;
                phase 0;
                angle 0;
Steps To ReproduceI have checked this problem under different scenarios (for 2D and 3D) and always got the same results. It seems other engineers are experiencing the same problem as well.
Problem occurs both for OF 5 and 6. I have attached a sample case in 2D for your consideration.

Reversed flow is more difficult to get right, but the tutorials/interFoam/laminar/wave case runs to completion with the speed set to zero, so the problem is not fundamental, it is with your case.
