saisanthoshm88 is on a distinguished road
Could it be a problem if a turbulent model is invoked for a flow which is indeed laminar
Best regards,

It means your flow will have extra dissipation, like it had too high a viscosity. And whether that is important will depend on how sensitive it is to viscosity levels.
