BlackBug is on a distinguished road
Hi guys,

merry christmas!

I'm simulating the flow inside an oleodinamic valve. The flow is incompressible and viscous. So i use a pressure-based solver but the Flow rate is uncorrect (i have experimental results). I tried both Laminar and K-e viscous model (rng and enanched wall functions) same results. I think to change the solver to density-solver...what do you think?
