Hello Openfoamers,

I'm working on the interFoam simulation of the open channel flow around a cylinder. Something like this:

I have to use LES model to simulate the vortexes (see this:

I have to calculate the wall shear stress on the bed, the drag coefficient on the cylinder, etc.

Unfortunately, the solution is not converging and I don't know why. I already searched in the forum, but I can't find any error.

Could someone try my files and see what is wrong?

Note: I used blockMesh, decomposePar, setFields...

Best regards.
