shashanktiwari619 is on a distinguished road
I am trying to simulate a falling sphere problem as described in the paper Jenny, M., Dušek, J., & Bouchet, G. (2004). Instabilities and transition of a sphere falling or ascending freely in a Newtonian fluid. Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 508, 201-239.

The fluid is stationary while the spherical particle inside the cube is moving. Is it possible to set this case in OpenFOAM using the LES turbulence model and sixDOFsolver?
