Default Simulation of flow around a ship hull using fluent and Openfoam

manoj_nav is on a distinguished road
Hi All,

I am trying to simulated flow around a ship hull (half hull), referring to the example DTCHull. I have generated the mesh using snappy. The same mesh I have also exported to Fluent format. I have run exactly similar simulation in OpenFoam and Fluent and I found that the pressure resistance calculated using openfoam is almost half that of Fluent calculated value. Can anyone help me to know, why is it so. Am I making any mistake? Has anyone faced a similar problem..
