Dear Foamers:
I want to simulate the air flow across an single building . I try to use the standard k-Epsilon of turbFoam. This is my steps:
1. generate the mesh using ICEM in windows, and then save to *.msh;
2. using "fluentMeshToFoam *.msh -scale 0.001",convert to foam mesh;
3.checkMesh, no problem;
4.copy turorials/turbFoam/cavity to my case directory, delete the "nuTilda and R" files, note the nuTilda and R lines in fvSchemes file.

divSchemes
{
default none;
div(phi,U) Gauss limitedLinearV 1;
div(phi,k) Gauss limitedLinear 1;
div(phi,epsilon) Gauss limitedLinear 1;
// div(phi,R) Gauss limitedLinear 1;
// div(R) Gauss linear;
// div(phi,nuTilda) Gauss limitedLinear 1;
div((nuEff*dev(grad(U).T()))) Gauss linear;
}
laplacianSchemes
{
default none;
laplacian(nuEff,U) Gauss linear corrected;
laplacian((1|A(U)),p) Gauss linear corrected;
laplacian(DkEff,k) Gauss linear corrected;
laplacian(DepsilonEff,epsilon) Gauss linear corrected;
// laplacian(DREff,R) Gauss linear corrected;
// laplacian(DnuTildaEff,nuTilda) Gauss linear corrected;
}

5. when I run , it displays the following mistakes:
kEpsilonCoeffs
{
Cmu 0.09;
C1 1.44;
C2 1.92;
alphaEps 0.76923;
}

It seems does not converge. because I'm newer , don't understand why. If it is because I haven't used turbFoam k-Epsilon correctly?
I think it is only an simple case ,fluent can solve this easily, Why OpenFOAM has so many problem?
Thank you very much.
