I try to simulate a naca0012 with turbFoam (60degree) (picture attachment)

with this parameters:

circle mesh around the naca ~500.000 cells (R~10m)
finest cell on caca ~1e-4

patches are
Naca = wall
inletOutlet = the hole circle around the naca
fronandback = cyclic

Euler;
gradSchemes linear;
divSchemes upwind;
adjustTimeStep (maxCo 1)

Courant Number mean: 9.73987e-07 max: 3.02009
deltaT = 7.61855e-19

time step continuity errors : sum local = 2.47449e-13, global = -1.86303e-17, cumulative = 6.42776e-14
ExecutionTime = 474.19 s ClockTime = 474 s

thats the facts,

first of all i think openFoam are a implicit solver (Co unimportant), thats obviously not the case because the simulation broken up with to high deltaT

As second step I try the option adjustTimeStep with a maxCo of 1, the conclusion is a very low timestep (|<1^ -20) and also a stop of the simulation after a few timesteps later whit this message

mpirun noticed that job rank 0 with PID 15544 on node DWOBLX018 exited on signal 15 (Terminated).
6 additional processes aborted (not shown)

I got no idea what I can chance for simulation run with a not too small timestep.

best wishes
