Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

This contribution extends upon the authors prior work using fundamental solutions to solve free surface problems. Here, the authors make a somewhat obvious adjustment-incorporating relation method. The authors demonstrably show that this improves the accuracy and reliability for solving three-dimensional free surface with nonlinear boundary conditions. The paper is well written.

Author Response

The responses of author to the reviewer 's comments are as the follows.

Reviewer 2 Report

This is a very interesting paper in which authors present the method for solving three nonlinear surfaces, which is a main problem in the literature. Paper is well structures and as far as this reviewer is concerned is correct.


Before accepting the paper this reviewer recommends the following:

Try to add to the conclusions section a more explicative discussion, since in its present form is too brief.

Try to conclude in a deeper way.

Revise the whole paper since there are some misprints.

Reviewer 2

This is a very interesting paper in which authors present the method for solving three nonlinear surfaces, which is a main problem in the literature. Paper is well structures and as far as this reviewer is concerned is correct. Before accepting the paper this reviewer recommends the following:

Point 1: Try to add to the conclusions section a more explicative discussion, since in its present form is too brief.

Response 1:

Thank you so much for this invaluable comment. We have carefully added more discussions to enhance the conclusion in page 17 (line 336 to 345).

Point 2: Try to conclude in a deeper way.

Response 2:

Thank you so much for this invaluable comment. As mentioned above, the authors have made an effort to enhance the conclusion. A comprehensive discussion for the conclusion has been provided in the revised manuscript in page 17 (line 336 to 345).

Point 3: Revise the whole paper since there are some misprints.

Response 3:

Thank you so much for this invaluable comment. The authors have carefully reviewed the whole manuscript again. The misprints have been found and revised as shown in the following list.
