pimplefoam steady state
 
hello
I am trying to simulate laminar,steady,incompressible flow with pimple foam.
how should I change it to get the right answer?I have defined velocity inlet and pressure outlet with steady boundary conditions.
thanks

Would removing the files for turbulence related variables work. Seems like icoFoam is the closest for your description but it's transient not steady-state.

icoFoam Transient solver for incompressible, laminar flow of Newtonian fluids

SimpleFoam is the usual solver for steady state problems

thanks to protect
I know that pimplefoam is for unsteady cases but I want to run steady case by pimplefoam in order to validation. could you please give more details about how to get the right steady answers by this solver?
