Default How to even start swak4foam cases

I just set up my first simulation with Openfoam 1706+ docker image and imported geometries from Salome. Works so far.

Next I would like to run swak4foam examples to try groovybc. I installed the docker container and copied pulsedpitzdaily to my home folder.

The tutorial says the next step would be to run blochMesh, which works. I had a look into the system folder and this example seems to use pisoFoam so I started pisoFoam which leads to an error message about a missing turbulenceProperties file. As there is a turbulenceProperties.template file I guess pisoFoam is the wrong command.

I could not find a source on how to use swak4foam that describes the command I need to use. Any ideas?

kinder regards,
