Dear friends

I want to simulate incompressible, turbulent, steadystate flow through a simple circular pipe. My turbulent model is kEpsilon.

Target value is : k, epsilon, p, U and T.

Which solver is suitable for this work?

I am thinking about simpleFoam? Is it ok?

I am uisng OpenFOAM 2.1.0. I didn't find the potentialFoam Solver.

Anotherthing, I am thinking to use buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam solver in which I will set g = ( 0 0 0 ). This solver will work for incompressible, steadystate laminar as well as turbulent flow. Since I will use g = ( 0 0 0), so, there will be no buoyant flow !!!

Am I right???

Well, why make things more complicated when you can simulate your flow easier?
Just pick simpleFoam - there you can model turbulence as well...
