ANSYS Aqwa significant wave height for floating breakwater

I am trying to model a floating breakwater using ANSYS Aqwa to determine the significant wave height in the lee side of the structure. When I ran the simulation, the significant wave heights before and after the structure were the same as well as the period. Is there something I could have missed during setup that could cause this? Is there any advice/ tutorial specifically related to this?


Thank You,

Can you check against the User Manual?  If you click on the help button it ought to take you there.

The structure should affect both values, and I don't think there's much to set up.  I suspect the community isn't using AQWA much, and I've not got much experience (I know what it does, but not much on how).
