Dear all:

I have made a solver of oodLagrangianFoam as icoFoam.

Now everything is ok except there is some difference between the result of "oodles" and "oodLagrangianFoam" when I only compute the flowfield. The difference is as the below lines:
oodLagrangianFoam

Starting time loop

Ps: In fact I have tried to make everything is the same, but I don't know how the difference comes out.

Do you have some idea about it?

Thanks!

Maybe I'm completely blind, but I could not see any difference. I mean there are some minor number difference, but ...

what are you BC? any turbulence forcing, or is there deterministic inlet, which gives always the same numbers to crunch? do you run the code parallel?

good luck

Thanks for your reply!

You are right, but it should be equal each other.In fact, BC is the same. The inlet condition is also sameI didn't run it in the parallel way.
