I want to solve flow past a cylinder problem, which is a laminar problem using openFom.
I can use two solvers Icofoam and pimpleFoam.
which solver will give me better result???

Hopefully both give the same result. pimpleFoam has more features than icoFoam.

Why is it important the solver when working on the laminar regime? And Why you say that flow past a cylinder is a laminar problem? Any incompressible flow solver *must* give you the same result (up to the order of discretization & modelling error ) in the laminar regime

Hi guys,

I moved your thread because it is not related to the specification of the forum.
Keep foaming,
