ufocfd is on a distinguished road
The main difficulty I noticed when trying to get rhoSimpleFoam to run, is the sensitivity to initial conditions. It crashes on the omega equation after a few iterations. I dont know if this can be resolved with very low relaxation factor on k/omega. But the problem is delayed by starting with low initial velocity.
