icoFoam vs simpleFoam
Hi all;
what's the difference between icoFoam and simpleFoam run with turbulence model? Thank you! 
icoFoam: Transient solver for incompressible, laminar flow of Newtonian fluids.
simpleFoam: Steadystate solver for incompressible, turbulent flow pisoFoam: Transient solver for incompressible flow. Turbulence modelling is generic, i.e. laminar, RAS or LES may be selected. look in source, you can find description for each solver!;) if you compare them, you will find little differences for examples: in simpleFoam in momentum equation fvm::ddt(U) is omited because it solves for steadystate or in icoFoam friction term is like that fvm::laplacian(nu, U) which does not count turbulence effect 
Thank you!
