Hi dears

I want to solve a transient laminar free-convection flow and heat transfer of water around a cylinder.
1- I select buoyantBussinesqPimpleFoam. Is it correct?
2- I solved it but the results are wrong! i.e. I have very small amount of velocity! in order of 10^-9 !! Whats the problem?
3- If I solve my problem by the assumption of turbulent flow, it will give me correct answers!!

- my openFoam version: 2.3.1
- endtime=1000
- deltat=1, 0.01, 0.001 (non of them gave me correct answer)
- div schemes: Gauss linear, bounded Gauss linear, bounded Gauss linearUpwind(non of them gave me correct answer)

solver PCG;
preconditioner DIC;
tolerance 1e-8;
relTol 0.01;

relTol 0;

solver PBiCG;
preconditioner DILU;

relTol 0;

momentumPredictor no;
nOuterCorrectors 1;

pRefValue 0;

"(U|T|k|epsilon|R)" 0.9;
