icoFoam - backward facing step measured by Armaly et. al. (1983)
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi,

I am trying to validate icoFoam for the backward facing step results of Armaly et. al.
I have a Reynolds number of 1200 and the expected ratio of recirculation length to step size is 18 whereas I get a value of 5 at steady state.
Could this be a problem with using icoFoam?
Please help.
I am attaching the openFoam folder structure for the problem setup.

Regards,
Gaurav
