Hello everybody,
I am an almost brand new OF user and I think I have some problems to set appropriate boundary conditons for a 2d incompressible aerodinamic case. The case in question is made up by a rectangular ambient simulating the wind tunnel, with inlet and outlet sections at the two sides. Immersed into the "tunnel" there is a 2d solid profile (initially I started simulating the flow around a very simple geometry, for instance a rectangular section). The inlet value of the velocity field has to be of about 4.28 m/s, and the Reynolds number referred to profile's lenght is of about 10^5. The solver I wish to use is the pisoFoam standard one for incompressible and unsteady flows, initially coupled with a k-epsilon standard RAS model. I tried to set the BC's and the other dictionaries (contrloDict, fvSchemes and fvSolution) having a look to the tutorials, but the results I have obtained are not good, because the velocity field seems more like a potential case one rather than a turbulent one, and also because the solution reaches convergence almost instantly. Down below I post the bc's, an image of the velocity field and the other dictionaries contents, so I will be quite happy if someone of us could tell me what I'm doing wrong...
Thank you in advance

Do you have initilized your velocity field with potentialFoam ?
and the initial value of epsion could be larger , for example 100 times than the real value.
Good luck.

Good luck.
1-No, I don't made any initialization of the velocity field. Is that always required for a transient simulation or it is simply a "good practice"?

2-I'll try to enlarge epsilon values and then I will post if there are some different results

Thanks

No changes after enlarging epsilon by a 10^2 factor...
