Question Non-separated flow in rhoCentralFoam

Hey guys,

i simulated the flow of air over a sphere in Re=1.8 million with rhoCentralFoam, where i supposed to be able to see that the flow behind the sphere would be separated, due to the high Reynolds number. Instead, the flow is stays attached to the sphere, no separation. I used ePsi thermo model and similar BCs like the ones in wedges tutorial.

Does anyone have any idea what may be the problem?

Thanks in advance

What is your turbulence model ? How are your inlet properties (turbulence level) ?

I used both laminar and turbulent k-omega models. The destributions of all the quantities look fine everywhere, but i don't get any vortices or separation.

Can you post your case files? Put everything except the mesh folder. You can enclose a zip file to the forum ("manage attachment ") .

Sorry for the delay, here are the 0 files for p/T/U

object p;

}

}
