Hello everyone,

i am working on a project to simulate the airflow around a turbine. when using the solver MRFSimpleFoam, the resultant coefficients of lift and drag i am obtaining are very very high. i would like to know what parameters i can change or play with within the p, u, k, omega files or MRF Zones that affect these values. Please i am very new to openfoam, i appreciate all the help. Thank you.
